Welcome to A Child's Light !

Child abuse and neglect is a national problem which has increased to epidemic proportions in the United States. More than 2.5 million reports of child abuse are made in the United States annually with hundreds of deaths related to child abuse reported each year.

 

Abuse robs children of the opportunity to develop healthy, trusting relationships with adults, contributes to low self-esteem, and impairs healthy psycho-social development. Indeed, the effects of childhood abuse often last a lifetime.

A Child’s Light, Inc. will provide child abuse educational and prevention services to individuals and organizations.

CLICK for Babies - Period of Purple Crying Caps

 

   
   

 

Supporting new parents and keeping infants safe from harm can seem like too big a task for any one person to take on.  The CLICK for Babies campaign offers a small but significant way for knitters and crocheters to do both those things. 

 

Every year, thousands of infants are shaken and abused at the hands of a frustrated parent or caregiver.  Frustration with a crying infant is the number one trigger for the shaking and abuse of infants. (continue)

Inspiration

A Child's Light is dedicated to the memory of six-month old Devin Matthew Logan who died on June 21, 2005 as the result of Shaken Baby Syndrome / Abusive Head Trauma. Devin was born on Christmas Day 2004 and shaken by his biological father on Father's Day morning 2005. Rest in peace little buddy.

 

 

Life is eternal, and love is immortal,
and death is only a horizon;
and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
