If you’ve visited our site in the past, you may be used to seeing more pictures than you do now.
For the past year or so, we’ve been hearing reports from Mia and the children about bullying in school. The more privileged students will harass our kids for being poor and living at Mia’s Children. It has caused some of our young people to go through school feeling especially isolated.
While we know the bullies are aware of Mia’s Children regardless of our website, we also realize that we have a responsibility to protect our kids as well as we can, including online. For that reason we have decided, at least for now, to take down pictures of our younger residents. We will also be changing their names at times.
We really regret having to do this; and we hate the brokenness that would cause any child to be abusive to his or her peers.
We hope to continue using pictures in our newsletters. If you have questions, or if you’d like to keep updated with us by email and regular mail, please feel free to contact us.
Thank you for your understanding!
