American Snippets with Barb Allen and Dave Brown

E009 - Cori Salchert's House of Hope for Hospice Babies

Episode Summary

Hundreds of thousands of children across this country are in the foster care system. Whether these children have been removed from abusive homes or lost their only family to tragedy, or any of the other reasons they find themselves dependent upon the state for care, all of these children deserve to find someone to love, care for, and cherish them. The luckiest of these children do, but too many others do not. This can be especially true for children with debilitating or life-limiting, terminal diseases. Fortunately for some of these children, people like Cori and Mark Salchert are stepping in. On this episode of American Snippets, we introduce you to a family who is dedicated to caring for children with a serious and sometimes terminal diagnosis. How they and their own children wrap their arms around these children is nothing short of extraordinary, and what they have to teach all of us in the process is equally so. Listen in to hear about a baby once wheeled into a corner and left to die, who found love in the Salcherts arms, as well as other stories about real children with real needs, and how Cori and Mark Salchert are ensuring every moment of these shortened lives is as special as it can be.
