Letter from the President

Russ Gobble, Ed. D. - President/CEO


few weeks back, a friend of mine announced that, "Today is the saddest day of the year." When I asked how he knew this to be true, he replied that he had just heard it on the radio. He went on to explain that the radio personality he listens to each morning had made this determination and subsequent announcement because we were in the middle of winter and that today was "the day" credit card companies issued statements of charges made during the month of December. We all understand that the charges on this bill include the ones we made prior to Christmas or potentially worse, the charges we made the day after Christmas.

It made perfect sense to me that with all of these factors coming together at one moment in time that it just might produce a bad day for someone who had either gotten swept up by the spirit of the season or was lured in by the promise of half priced merchandise. Furthermore, it seemed plausible that without some pre-planning, a hint of financial discipline and a warm coat, it just might very well be the saddest day of the year for some folks. After this brief period of contemplation, I turned to my friend and said, "Thanks a lot, I was feeling pretty good until I ran into you!" We shared a laugh and started up the stairs and just before getting to the top of the stairs he stopped and added, "So, I guess if we make it past today, the rest of the year will be much better." I said, "It's too late to cheer me up now, Sunshine" and our conversation ended as our paths separated. Over the course of the next few days this scene kept replaying itself in my head. I suppose this was one of those conversations that occasionally gets stuck in your brain and seems to beg for another layer of consideration before you can move on. After much contemplation, this scene took me back to some advice that my Mom had given me many years ago. She always said that if you were troubled by something that you should put it away for three days and at the end of that time you should re-visit the situation to make sure it held the same level of importance. She further suggested that if it did retain the same level of importance, some action might be required in order for you to move forward. What I discovered by using her advice was that rarely did any situation hold the same meaning for three days and many times they magically went away. As always, when I consider my saddest day it doesn't revolve around credit cards or charges, but rather the day that Mom passed. We have no control over those kinds of events, but we can appreciate the time we had together and hold close the memories. Although it is part of the modern landscape, my greatest concern is not whether we can pay the bills that come due, but rather that because we loose focus or due to our haste that we forget to pass along the lessons of hope that someone shared with us. I can't imagine life without hope and most times holding three days of hope in reserve is all it takes to move us forward. By your continued support, you help us share this message of hope with the children we serve and further help them realize that if we can make it past today, then we can be confident that life will be much brighter in the future.

A Place to Call Home


imes were good for Lucien in 2008. His mother had just gotten an apartment and he was able to leave the American Children's Home to move back with her. However, Lucien still didn't quite "get it". He went back to hanging out with his old crowd and skipping school.

About 6 months later, Lucien's mother lost her apartment again and he moved in with his sister. "I was hanging out in the streets and getting into trouble," Lucien shares. At age 18, he was convicted of resisting arrest in late 2009 and went on the run until early 2010. Realizing this was no kind of life; he turned himself in and served 45 days in jail. Upon release, on March 1, 2010 Lucien found himself back on the streets. Lucien remembers, "by this time my family had given up on me." He spent some nights in a homeless shelter, but wanted more and knew he could do better. A newspaper ad stating, "Must be 18 and willing to travel" resulted in a bus ticket to Dayton, Ohio. The job was selling magazines door to door. This journey would lead him through 4 states and numerous jobs in 7 months. "Even though Continued Page 4, "Lucien"

Giving a Child a Reason to Smile

ur children come to us after being removed from their homes by the courts due to abuse, neglect and/or abandonment. Some arrive just days before Christmas. Many are coping with grief, attachment/abandonment and anger issues. They often have many emotional, physical, social and educational needs. Some of the children find it hard to smile. One particular young man participated in the Christmas pageant. After seeing the first presentation, one of our staff remarked, "that was the first time he had seen Ben (not his real name) smile." Your generosity at Christmas and throughout the year gives these children reason to smile. Thanks to the following list of groups and individuals, the children were blessed with necessities, parties, food, fun and gifts, but most of all the belief that they are truly

Success Stories

nthony, 18, proudly displays the certificates he recently earned. He is enrolled in the Get Real Program to earn his GED. After not attending school in seven years, Anthony was ecstatic over earning his first High School Credit as well as completing two grade levels. Anthony is gaining confidence in his abilities since coming to ACH. Your contributions make it possible for these children to have a second chance at success.

Lucien, continued from page 2

I had more than I did with my family ­ somewhere to stay and food to eat ­ I still didn't make it without an education. I had changed my ways, but was still in the same predicament," says Lucien. He made the decision to come home. Arriving home, Lucien realized his family didn't want to be bothered. He had burned that bridge. Finding himself homeless again, it was time for some tough decisions. All of his old support network, his friends were doing the same things in the same place. Nothing had changed. Lucien quotes, "You can't keep doing the same things and expecting something different." Lucien made a commitment to getting his education. He called Department Social Services and requested placement back at the one place that was a good experience ­ The American Children's Home. Thankfully, it was one bridge he hadn't burned. At age 19, Lucien is enrolled in the P.A.L. (Preparation for Adult Living) Program. His goals are to complete his GED and go to college to study mechanics. He is also sharing his story with the other children on campus and serving as a role model. He saw first hand how tough it can be on your own without the proper skills. Lucien shares, "Education is the key. I am grateful for the opportunity to return to ACH (the American Children's Home) and participate in the P.A.L. Program." Because you care...ACH was here when Lucien needed a place to call `home'. Your support means that Lucien and the other children who call ACH `home' have nutritious food to eat, clean clothes to wear and a warm bed at night, but it goes beyond that by providing the programs that heal broken spirits and giving them a powerful tool for tomorrow...HOPE. To continue providing HOPE, mail your checks to: American Children's Home, P.O. Box 1288, Lexington, NC 27293-1288.

Christmas Blessings

Directed by Betty Pardue, the children (complete with reindeer antlers) performed songs, poetry and bible verses for volunteers visiting throughout the season.

Ashley gives Santa her wish list during the Salisbury H.O.G.'s annual visit to campus. Pizza was provided by Tilley's Harley Davidson.

Kennedy Smith, a 6 year old in the first grade at Northwest Elementary collected monies since October. She wanted to help the children. Kennedy arrived with $40 cash plus change in a little gift bag.

Dr. Gobble presents framed Christmas Cards donated by Dempsey Essick and signed by all the children to members of the American Legion Riders Post 55 and H.O.G.S. of Winston-Salem.

For many years, Marty, Audrey, and Angie Mangum have led their Adams Farms neighbors and friends in sharing the spirit of Christmas with the children and staff at ACH.

The 31 Team Pit Crew Members raised money throughout the 2010 NASCAR race season to help improve the lives of the boys and girls at ACH. By selling lug nuts and gloves at $1 a piece, they raised a total of $4,000 for general operating fund, entertainment/ activities and recreational equipment. Presenting the checks to Dr. Gobble are left to right: Noah North, Board member Jessie North, Bowen North, Gobble, and Pit Crew Member Jon Wallace.

Santa and his elves (a.k.a. Will Tate, Roger Tripp, and Lisa Hathaway respectively) hand out gifts at the annual Kiwanis Dinner. Kiwanians also judge the Cottage Decorations and provide prizes.

La-Z-Boy employees pose with Dr. Gobble during a party for the children.
