A New Year message from Mama Sue
As we start a New Year, many of us still in the grips of the pandemic, we look forward to a time when we can put it all behind us.
At Happy House, where our family had been in lockdown for many months, the children are looking forward to returning to our school on Monday.
There the methods we have honed during home-schooling will be rolled out to every class, harnessing Zoom and using internet resources more than ever.
Evans, one of the first children to join our family in 2010, along with his elder sister, Janet and younger brother Oscar, will complete his schooling after his secondary exams.
He will, like his sister, moving out to live independently but will working at Happy House while studying a management course remotely, with the aim of joining Mama's management team. Exciting times for this young man.
2020 should have been a year full of celebration for Happy House and, indeed, we did get our 10th birthday in before the pandemic forced is all into lockdown, instead it's been a year of keeping going with the aim of staying safe and well - just as it has for our friends across the world.
As Mama says without you none of her work would be possible. Your kindness in donations, sponsoring our children, and in sending gifts keeps us going as a charity. But it is the love you show for us that is the driving force and we are forever grateful. Thank you. We send our love, our good wishes and our prayers for a happy and healthy 2021.
