Why not help children here in the states?
Our decision to be involved in this cause was a result of a little girl named Faith who needed our help. We did not choose this cause over other causes, but we were given an opportunity to help someone and we took it.
How did you come up with the name Footprints of Faith?
Well, it was fairly simple. The little girl that the foundation started with is named Faith and it was the path that led to her that inspired us and the name of the foundation.
