9: it’s a number to remember—and to rejoice in!
We were so Blessed recently with the opportunity to provide a home for a large sibling group… 9 (yes, 9!) brothers and sisters are now a member of the Everyday Blessings family! These 9 children range in age from 1 to 15 and to imagine them having been separated from each other is heartbreaking. But watching them all back together now is heartwarming and yet another reason why we know we are doing vitally important work. An amazing opportunity like this ONLY occurs at Everyday Blessings. Caring for large sibling groups is what Everyday Blessings does! It’s what sets us apart from all the others.
As we celebrate the third year at our beautiful campus in Lithia, we are settling in and recognizing the needs, long and short term, that will provide for the children and sibling groups we serve and our organization as a whole. When we moved here, we had strong feelings that this was going to be the place for Everyday Blessings for the next 30 years. We could not have been more right! Our cottages and spacious wooded lot are the best setting for all the kids and staff—it’s the perfect place to provide a real family environment.
Please continue (or begin!) to wrap your arms and hearts around not only the 9 siblings, but all our kiddos and staff by donating to our mission during this holiday season and throughout the year. Monetary donations allow us to meet the many needs of the children we serve; from food, clothing, crisis intervention, and shelter to mentoring, transportation, tutoring, and the medical & developmental care they so desperately need.
If you can, please consider giving today and be part of the proud tradition of supporting the best child caring agency in Florida! On behalf of all the children of Everyday Blessings—past, present and future—thank you!

Happy Birthday D
Late last month the boys and the rest of the EBI family had fun celebrating D’s birthday with presents, cake & candy A few days later, D’s birthday wish came true… he & his siblings got to go home with familyObtaining a “Forever Home” is the ultimate outcome for children in foster care and takes much behind-the scenes effort from so many. After a very long road and heartbreaking circumstances, the hard work of a multitude of people including Florida Guardian ad Litem, case managers, Everyday Blessings staff, volunteers and supporters, D and his siblings were finally able to transition to their forever home with relatives. The childrens’ waving goodbye from the car was a tear-jerker for everyone, but so worth it for the promising future this family now has together.
Happy Life Kiddos
