Children Need LOVING ARMS!!!

 

 

Think back to your Childhood…                       

   Think back to when you felt alone or scared…

       Think back those Loving Arms that held you and made you feel safe…and rocked you to sleep

                       Now think about not having them…

Day and night Child Care Workers (CCW) are on hand to be those Loving Arms to the most vulnerable and in need children. For many of these children they will be the first truly kind and Loving Arms to embrace them and give them a place to run to when scared, hurt and very much  alone.

Child Care Workers are the unsung heros that make the daily difference to so many children. They have a special approach to understand  children who came from difficult homes or circumstances,  who lack love and who need more than just a bed and a roof over there heads.

The first few weeks of  placing a child with their CCW is often referred to as the ‘honeymoon' period, as this is  where the  child and CCW relationship building is undertaken. The child will began to open up and share with the CCW the hardships and traumas of their life and through these discussions it soon becomes apparent that they just  want to be loved unconditionally by someone in their life.

The CCW  understands the child , not as a "case" to be solved, but as a victim of circumstance who needs some human understanding and support to overcome the challenges they have encountered in their young lives. They have a special approach to understanding  children who came from difficult homes or circumstances,  who lack love and who need more than just a bed and a roof over there heads.

Children need Loving Arms whilst waiting to be reunified or place in a secure family.
