Heroine of Child Foster Care

Mrs. Karen Liverman

A rapt audience at Sisters Home Visitors of Mary convent on Sunday, April 15, listened intently to the experiences and knowledge of Mrs. Karen Liverman speaking on the topic of Foster Care and Early Childhood education in Michigan.   Mrs. Liverman is a compassionate and dedicated educator with an extensive background in child welfare issues.   She and her husband, Dr. William E. Liverman, are the proud parents of ten children, seven of whom are special needs, adopted after being placed in their foster care. 

 

 

 

At the conclusion of Mrs. Liverman’s talk, Sr. Rosemarie was moved to comment how lucky the listeners were to be in the presence of a walking Saint.    

 

Foster care identifies and places children in safe homes when they cannot remain with their families because of concerns for the safety of the child.   The foster families provide these children with the consistency and critical support they need to grow. 

Nearly 13,000 children are in foster care in Michigan and 300 children still need an adoptive family.   Click here >>> Michigan foster care website <<< to learn more on how to become involved in foster care.

Happy Easter!

Alleluia! Alleluia ! Alleluia!

Each Sunday we are called to pause and celebrate the rising of the SON along with our own rising as sons and daughters.  In the Breaking of the Bread, we enter the Mystery of the dying and rising and we open ourselves to being bonded in love to our God and to each other. 

The many symbols of life that we especially touch at this Easter Season (e.g., new clothes, Easter eggs, spring flowers, the Easter candle, water from the baptismal font) bring us hope.  And with hope engendered by the Spirit of love, we can go forth seeing, touching all with love – a love that welcomes and creates peace and joy for all.

Happy Easter!
