Welcome to Ark of Hope for Children's prayer support page for child abuse and child trafficking survivor’s in need. Please pray regularly and share the link to this page http://bit.ly/1nOBilG as prayer needs will be updated regularly here. Here is a shortened link to this page.
All health procedures on this page are directly related to physical or sexual abuse unless otherwise noted. Names are changed to respect privacy while protecting them from fears of abuser revenge. Postings here are ONLY for well-deserved prayer support for young survivors, or older survivors that were victimized as children, that Ark of Hope for Children virtually mentors on an often dally basis.
We can all be such a huge blessing and expect healing as God moves. We are counting on you. Thank you so much! For other survivor and Ark of Hope prayer updates please follow this link.

Alexander – Cancer in remission (but often still quite sick)

We are grossly underfunded and under "staffed"
2016-09-07 - Micahel - And two other children we halped get away from their abusers, get them reported and jailed and/or imprisoned ALL got adopted today by their amazing foster families! Michael has even taklen parts of Ark of Hope founder Blair Corbett's name due to the extreme close bond they have had since day one almost two years ago.
2016-09-06 - Jack - Preteen child trafficking and child abuse and bullying survivor attempted suicide. Emergency surgery to correct damage. Once out of intensive care will undoubtedly face a stay at a child psych unit.
2016-08-31 - Kyle - Continues fighting rejection of his donated liver with higher meds but infections ave stopped and we have worked hard to get speaking and typing ablities back up to full sentences. He was finally able to return to school via computer today!
2016-08 - UnNamed - Very young survivor attempts suicide so as not to feel the barage of constant memories. A week plus in the hospital and a psychiatric unit have been a help and they have returned home at least suprt-charged to never repeat the experience. Psych able to diagnose things that we strongly suspected but nobody had ever formerly diagnosed so there will be a loty of help going forward.
2016-06 to 09 - Kyle - Faced at least four week+ long hospital stays due to infections. Each time the memories he was able to recover were once again taken down. Sighh, Pray these end.
2016-05-21 - UnNamed - Three teen severe child abuse survivors we support will leave for their first vacations ever today and they promise to take us with every step of the way. This will be encouraging and exciting as they experience joyful things they so deeply deserve!
2016-05-21 - UnNamed - Being rushed to Pediatric ICU with a severe kidney infection. Possible failure of some sort. :-( That will make three very young child abuse survivors we support in intensive care around the globe at the same time.
2016-05-18 - Kyle - Rushed to hospital. Confused and dizzy. Diagnosed with hepatic encephalopathy, his diseased liver is sending bad fluids through his body into his brain. They must filter the fluids somehow and medicate to try to diminish the problem. This will raise him on the liver transplant list. His first day of kidney dialysis yesterday went well. That will be three days a week, four hours at a time.
2016-05-12 - Michael - Had outpatient surgery today to remove a granuloma from his throat, It has been growing as a result of scar tissue that developed after one of his times being intubated for surgery.

2016-04-17 to 2016-04-28 – Kyle – Hospitalized with bronchial cold fighting against pneumonia and high fevers. Pneumonia settled in and he was moved to ICU and intubated to help him fight. Foortunately after a week things began to improve. He was relased on April 28
