A Foster Care Story | Marvin

Love for a Child is a Michigan based charity serving children of foster care who have experienced trauma in the forms of abuse, abandonment and neglect. Marvin, a former child of foster care was part of our program for 3 years. He brought a personality that everyone found contagious, being filled with laughter, deep emotion and compassion.

In this video we showcase how children of care are wanting the simple fulfillment of creating childhood moments to look back on, while sharing a message of encouragement to other children seeking to find their forever home.

We believe Kids should be Kids. Hope can help heal the hurt. Fears turned into freedom. Trauma turned into trust and the loss replaced by actions of love. To learn more about our camps, mentorship and resources, visit us online at

Timmy | A Foster Care Story

This is Timmy, a Love for a Child Camp Counselor. In 2008, Timmy (Age 10) showed up to a camp as a foster child seeking hope. Having faced many challenges of foster care in Michigan, Timmy was statistically destined to have a hard life, predicted to fail at most things due to the harsh outcomes of Michigan’s foster care system. Timmy, a fighter, would become stronger than imaginable, accomplishing goals most children and teens do not in the system. Most importantly, 11 years later he would choose to volunteer at Love for a Child summer camp, to the very foster kids, where it all began for him stepping off the bus. This is Timmy's story. A true story about bravery and encouragement. We believe Kids should be Kids, to replace the hurt with hope. For everything that we do is authentically and wholeheartedly, Love for a Child.
