“A true and genuine love of and for all children is the most important gift we can give to children.” As part of our ministry at LCOR we take an interest in all aspects of the children and their families. We are role models for our children and our future. I believe as adults what we do or don’t do in the presence of a child has more of an influence than what we say, with a lasting impression extending long after the early childhood years.
