“Who will make room?
Out of a life that’s overflowing, a house that’s a squeeze.
Whose heart is afraid?
To give a spot to one who will someday become a memory.
Love will make room
Love will make possible a refuge to welcome them in
Love will make room
Love will find a spot in your heart to give them a shot
Give them a shot at love."

This is an excerpt of the lyrics written by one of our HFG-SG parents, Hwee Ling, and "premiered" by her teen daughter at an open mic event. This is the cry of our hearts - “who will make room” for kids who need a home and a “spot in your heart” to “give them a shot at love”. (Video)
