This heartfelt story begins on the streets of New York City in 1854 where thousands of homeless children, immigrants and natives are fighting to survive. Charles Loring Brace, founder of the Children's Aid Society, made a plan to rescue the children by getting them out of the city to loving rural homes in America's growing Midwest. The first location to accept these homeless children is Dowagiac, Michigan. You will experience the hope, fear and excitement as you travel with Jack, Sarah, George and 42 other orphans on their way to new faraway homes and better lives.
