Leap Frog

At first, I thought this little girl had horns, but it is just her pony tails flying in the game. These bronze figures are in the front lawn of the Boise Children's Home. It's celebrating 100 years this year. It used to be an "orphanage." Poor families in rural areas used to send their children there when they couldn't afford to keep them. I know a man who carries that story. Now, the building houses offices where people focus on helping in adoption and foster care.

    If you know anyone who works at the home, please congratulate them for us. One hundred years of helping children is a wonderful thing to celebrate!
