Dear Friends:

On behalf of our hostesses, Joyce Koch and Peggy Guernsey, and all of the babies and toddlers at Nazareth Home, thank you. Thank you for your generosity. Thank you for your kindness. Thank you for your caring.

You made the “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” Char-a-Tea so much fun! We hope that you enjoyed tea time and that you are inspired to learn more about Nazareth Home and our resilient foster children.

Your support offers help and hope to babies that have been abused, neglected, exposed to alcohol or drugs in the womb, or in need of extensive surgeries. You are setting their lives on a stable, loving path for the future. Thank you.

There are so many ways to be involved—volunteering to cuddle babies, coordinating a diaper drive, inviting me to speak to your service club or church, making a financial contribution... maybe you have some ideas of your own! Please call (219) 616-8845 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to visit with me about possibilities that pique your interest.

With great thanks,

Jean Bowman
