Letter: Children need a safe, secure environment to grow up in

I was so excited to win the beautiful quilt displayed at the Bemidji Women’s Expo in September. Many thanks to the Willow Wood Quilters Club and to Dolly McGrath for all your work.

Paul Bunyan Broadcasting sponsored the fundraiser to raise money to fight child abuse. There are many abuses against children, such as physical, sexual, emotional and neglect which can leave permanent scars. The child grows with lasting effects of lack of self-identity and difficult relationships. We need to treat our children with an unconditional love, providing them with a safe, secure environment and also with a feeling of belonging and acceptance.

We can give thanks at this Christmas time to God who gave us such beautiful gifts of our precious children.
