This month, we had the opportunity to celebrate the amazing mothers in our life – and at LIRS that includes many of the resilient and courageous women that we serve. But today, the plight of mothers who are seeking refuge in America, is often marked by sacrifice and loss – in fact, this week brought the heartbreaking news of yet another child who died in U.S. custody.
So, this Mother’s Day we remembered those who have lost or been separated from a loved one, those in immigration detention, and those who have yet to find safety in America. We will do our part to offer comfort and compassion to those in our care. Always.
