Forever In Our Hearts - our "Cutest Monkey EVER!"


All of us at Arizonans for Children were absolutely devastated to learn of the death of  "The Cutest Monkey EVER!"

The Parent Aid that supervised visits between this baby and his mother and siblings came to me asking if we could hang his picture at our center.  We have it up and will keep it there forever as he is forever in our hearts.

We hear news stories of kids being abused and neglected, we see those children.  I cannot imagine having the job or the decisions that go along with it.  Arizonans for Children cannot control what happens before and after time at our Visitation Centers but what we can do is ensure the time the families spend with us is as wonderful as possible.

In the words of this Parent Aid "his time spent at the center were happier times in his short life."

We are going to have our Arizonans for Children Costume Closet in honor of this life lost far too soon.  The centers will be filled with pirates and princesses, skunks and skeletons, Batman and bumble bees.
Let's make this the best Halloween ever in honor of the cutest monkey EVER!

The Arizonans for Children Amazon Wish List has costumes and treat ideas.





Dollar Tree stores have lots of costumes and treats available.


Anytime Fitness at Dobson Ranch is holding a costume donation drive.  Stop by, say hi to John and his team and drop off new or gently loved costumes and treats.
When our community comes together we can change the world!

New and gently loved costumes can be dropped off at either Arizonans for Children Visitation Center.
Phoenix Visitation Center 1112 W. Camelback Rd, Phoenix AZ 85013 open M-F 9-6 and Sat 10-2
Mesa Visitation Center 1020 N. Horne, Mesa AZ 85203 open M-F 10-6 and Sat 10-2

If you would like to hold a costume donation drive please let me know - az4children.laura@gmail.com


It would be easy to focus on the system and casting blame but I hope that in this babies honor we can channel that into making a magically fun event that will create a lifetime of memories.  Together we can ensure that every child that comes through the Arizonans for Children Visitation Center doors has happy times and leave with wonderful memories.
