Picture Tuesday - February 15, 2011

The Front Porch

Every Tuesday is Picture Day at the Hope Cottage Blog.  This week's pictures offer a view from The Front Porch.  The front porch was very important at Hope Cottage.  All the time we were at our baby cottage on Welborn Street in Dallas, we would open the door and yes, there would be a baby on the front porch in a basket, with a little note pinned to his/her that said "please find my baby a good home."  Just like in the movies.  So, enjoy some pictures from the front porch at Hope Cottage!

Hope Cottage could accomodate 50 children at one time.  When all the beds were full, we put up a sign that said "No More Babies Taken".  When a bed opened up, the sign came down.  Of course, if someone left an infant, that baby was taken in, regardless of what the sign said.
