Every day a child is born.

A day of love and joy.

A blessing from God above.

Every child has the right to dream,

But some dreams are forgotten as pages turn.

It is our responsibility to help where we can.

Rebuild broken dreams piece by piece.

Every child deserves a fair chance,

A life filled with hope and prayer,

A desire for a better tomorrow.

All we have to do is reach out and touch.

“We are the rose of sharon foundation

And we never forget your dreams”
