Since the time of their youth the foster mom had the dream to take in orphans into her family one day. This dream was born when she and her friends came in contact with orphans while a summer camp.
When she married and already had children of her own, she and her husband decided to take in orphans. However, they did not possess enough living space
In November 2017 these foster parents met the Chairman of the Foundation “Die Brücke zum Leben”, Mr. Waldemar Schroeder, who offered to help them by building a Children’s Home.
On November 1, 2018 the opening ceremony of the house was celebrated.
