Tyranny (Ty) loves music! Through an incredibly generous gift from Brent and Kristy Henry of Brent Henry Racing fame, Ty was given 52 weeks of vocal lessons. Ty has been studying voice with Sergio Hernandez for 9 months now. The transformation in attentiveness and responsibility has been nothing short of amazing.
Ty began with a shy voice and now sings with enthusiasm and musicality. He eagerly attends class and has grown in confidence and maturity. To witness the joy music has brought to Ty is heartwarming. Music lessons have been a Godsend for Ty, changing his outlook on life and his future.
A Little More About Tyranny
Ty was born in 2010. He is creative and has a contagious smile. He enjoys building objects with Legos. Ty enjoys being outdoors, riding his bike, skateboard, playing with Nerf guns, and playing on his flag football team. He believes the best in people and likes to help and serve. He recently had a $100 shopping spree where he bought things for other people before spending any money on himself. Tyranny has made friends in the neighborhood and has gotten involved in his church choir where he did a solo of the song Silent Night!
Tyranny wants an active family who loves to play and have fun together. He would do well in a two parent or single parent home with no younger children. When asked about family Tyranny said,
“I want to be with a family, period. But I want to be with a family that has fun a lot together.”
Above all else, Tyranny wants a forever family. Please share this newsletter with others and help tell Ty’s story. If you know anyone who wants to open their heart and home to Ty as his forever family, please reach out to Building Arizona Families adoption agency. The contact to adopt foster children is Ixcel Baca, and she can be reached at 623-696-9537. You can e-mail her HERE, and you can download a free info kit on adopting foster children HERE.
As we head into the holiday season, I am grateful for the precious orphaned children that we have the privilege of bringing healing and hope to. I rejoice with Ty’s progress, and the progress of the other children in the program. However, I know how hard the holidays are for these children who have already been horribly abused and are now orphans through no fault of their own. They really need to know they are not forgotten, that they are valuable, and that people care enough to help them heal so that they can have a happier future than the life they have experienced so far.
The holidays remind these children that they don’t have families. While the other children at school talk about their Thanksgiving and Christmas plans, orphans living right in our own backyards hide from those painful conversations with their hearts breaking inside. They truly think that no one wants them. One of the group homes we work with just told us that a student we were going to start working with is now hospitalized for suicidal behaviors. It’s that difficult for these children.
There are thousands of abused, orphaned children in our own backyards. Together we can change their future by giving them the gift of healing. With your help, we will provide these children with the musical instrument of their choice and match them with a professional, therapeutic music instructor who will encourage, mentor, and provide a positive outlet for the emotional turmoil and pain that, as children, they have difficulty expressing. The music therapy is proven to reduce depression, improve social skills, and positively academic outcomes which they desperately need to have a productive future.
Please join with me in giving the gift of healing for the holidays. Let’s change the pain to joy! If you act now, we can make sure your sponsored orphan has their instrument and lessons started over the holidays. You can write to your child, and in many instances visit them as well. You truly can change a child’s future, and I hope you will – the children urgently need us now.

GIVE ORPHANED CHILDREN THE GIFT OF HEALING & HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS
There are so many ways for individuals to help change the lives of foster children.
Choose a child or children to sponsor for a year. You can choose to cover the costs of the child’s instrument and lessons, just the lessons, or just the instrument. You can also choose to give to the area of greatest need. You can make a single gift or a monthly recurring gift. And remember, it changes childrens’ lives and is tax deductible as an additional benefit to you.
Businesses that sponsor music lessons and instrument rental for at risk children are first and foremost changing the lives of the most vulnerable children in the U.S. As a thank you for the generosity of our business partners, we provide an effective platform for businesses to build their brand around their corporate generosity.
Research proves that corporations that give back have a significantly higher brand appeal and loyalty rate. Corporations engaged in social good also positively impact their own employees at work satisfaction and company loyalty. Being a champion for at-risk children provides the opportunity for employees to stay in touch with their sponsored child, providing a source of joy and sense of being cared about for children who in many instances have been terribly abused and discarded.
We urgently need your help for thousands of U.S. orphans living in group homes and shelters around our country. These orphaned children have already experienced so much pain and loss from unimaginable child abuse and neglect. They need the opportunity to heal through the therapy of playing a musical instrument. We are an IRS registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your generous gift is tax deductible. As a result of our financial transparency and integrity, we have been awarded the Guidestar Gold Transparency Seal. You can trust us that your tax deductible gift goes to change abused orphans lives. Please do what you can to help these children!
