Girl Looking Nervous While Swinging Under Tree

Christmas is a season of joy and celebration for most children. But for children like Hannah*, it is another painful reminder of their loneliness, heartbreak, and hopelessness.

But this year, Christmas is going to be different for Hannah. That’s because she received a life-changing gift—her MacKillop Family Services foster carers. Mark and Anne are now caring for Hannah in a loving, safe home. To Hannah, Mark and Anne are family.

Before Hannah came to live with Mark and Anne, she knew what it meant to be hungry. Empty cupboards were never a surprise, but always a disappointment. Hannah’s older sister—a child herself—would try to scrounge up food for Hannah and her siblings. But now that Hannah is with Mark and Anne, she knows that her belly will be full.

Before Hannah came to live with Mark and Anne she was so scared and sad—every day was unpredictable and uncertain. But now her cheeky personality is beginning to shine through again. And for the first time in a long time, Hannah can’t wait for Christmas.

Each night, MacKillop foster carers like Mark and Anne care for more than 600 children across Australia. But there are so many more children and families who need your help.

Your gift today will help ensure we can place children in loving, nurturing foster homes before Christmas.

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