Katie's Story

Right this second, there are children across Australia who desperately need safe, loving homes. Can you give today to help ensure that children escaping abuse and neglect will have a family to turn to this Christmas season?

Girl With Brown Hair Looking Serious With Golden Light Behind Her

Imagine for just one moment being a child again... It’s nearing Christmas time, a time to enjoy a long summer holiday and lots of family fun. You would expect this time of year to be one of excitement, anticipation and fun.

But what if your life is not like that of a typical Australian child? All you have ever felt, all you have ever known, was neglect and sadness. It’s not your fault.

You have never experienced the security of a stable family. You have never had a home to call your own. You have never felt like you belonged.

This is what happened to Katie*.

Will you donate today to make sure that kids like Katie can experience the love of a family this Christmas season?

Thankfully, Katie has been placed with a family she now calls her own. MacKillop Family Services asked foster carers Michael and Elizabeth if they would open their hearts and their home to Katie. They immediately said yes and two years on they have given Katie the home and family she needs.

More importantly, Katie is starting to feel that she truly does belong.

The love and support Katie has received from her MacKillop foster carers cannot be measured—and it’s made possible by donors like you.

Will you help a child like Katie find a foster home where they too can belong this Christmas? Your donation will make a real, last impacting on the life of a child.

*Although we have changed her name and photo to protect her privacy, Katie’s story is true.
