At our last team meeting all together, staff took turns reading this surprise poem to our amazing support staff. Please enjoy as it speaks beautifully to the love they shared with our OLA children.


Because of You

Adapted from poem written by Heather Price


Because of you a child was loved.

Because of you a child believes they can reach the stars above.

Because of you a child found laughter and smiles.

Because of you a child felt worthwhile.

Because of you a child learned to love and not fight.

Because of you a child will want to read every night.

Because of you a child learned patience when someone is driving them crazy.

Because of you a child learned the value of work and to not be lazy.

Because of you a child learned persistence when the going got rough.

Because of you a child learned the gift of kind words and love is enough.

Because of you a child found comfort in loving arms

Because of you a child felt safe from words and hands that harm.

Because of you a child learned as they “play.”

Because of you a child made a difference along life’s way.

Because of you a child’s life will be forever touched in ways you may never see.

Because God used YOU to help them become the person He wanted them to be!
