Hello and happy Sunday! This week’s #SweetSunday post features TN Kids Belong. This is one of the most beautiful, profoundly important Nashville charities. TN Kids Belong is passionate about giving foster care children everything they need to thrive in life. This starts with safe, loving foster families and continues with resources for children who have aged out of the foster care system.
So here’s a brief introduction to TN Kids Belong, plus some sweet ways you can help foster care children and the families who are welcoming these precious kids into their homes!
