Rate this:
Save My Children is the compelling story of a young couple who became mother and father to over 800 abused and neglected children. Harvey and Elsie Jespersen had one desire: to provide a safe place for any child needing a family. This is a fictional retelling of the true story of the founders of Bethany Homes for Children. From 1948-1991 the Jespersens fostered up to fifty-five kids at any given time. Their home consisted of a set of old army barracks based on 42 acres of Albertan farmland. Through hard work, determination and patience, the barracks were transformed into a place of refuge for generations of children. Refusing to take any payment except what parents could afford, Harvey and Elsie depended solely on the power of prayer. Written in honour of Bethany Homes' 60th Anniversary, Save My Children tells of love's ability to mend hundreds of broken children through two open hearts.
