The Holidays are a favorite time of year for many of us, but for some of the kids here at Soaring Wings Ranch, that is not always the case. Christmas has been a very hurtful time in many of our children’s pasts. Often they have never enjoyed the family Christmas that some take for granted. More importantly, many have never celebrated the birth of our Savior.
Our ranch families spend a special evening down at our cabin on Christmas eve. Gathered around the fireplace in the living room, we sing Christmas carols of praise to Christ. Reading the Christmas story from the Bible reminds the children just how loved they are by Christ. By sharing the Gospel, our children know that through Christ we all have the ultimate gift of eternal life. It truly is a wonderful time. Their sweet voices fill the cabin as they sing and their faces glow with wonder as they hear the Christmas Story.
And as with most children, they enjoy opening their gifts on Christmas morning (some on Christmas Eve). Our house parents excel at listening to and shopping for the children.
We spend $350 per child for Christmas at SWR.
- $300 goes toward Christmas gifts for the child
- $25 for the child to identify and purchase gifts for someone in need
- $25 for the children to buy their house parents gifts
