When Kaitlyn was 8, her dad drained her mom’s bank account and took everything she had—her mom told him to pack his bags and get out of the house. Kaitlyn got off the bus one day after school with her brother and saw her dad had moved out and all that was left was a note. Kaitlyn was a daddy's girl so when he left, she was devastated. She didn't understand why he left because she was so young. She just knew she got home from school one day and her dad was gone.

Newsroom - Alumni Homecoming
Friday, August 5, 2011
Alumni Homecoming weekend will be held August 5-7th, 2011. This is an exciting time when the alumni come “home” and visit with one another and share their memories of growing up and living at Barium Springs Home for Children.
Friday will be a time for the alumni to enjoy leisure time with their Barium Springs’ brothers and sisters. This day is also designated to visit campus and the local community to renew memories, or visit local alumni in the area. Dinner will be provided at the lodging area and will consist of hamburgers and hot dogs, with ice cream sundaes for dessert! There will be entertainment Friday night, followed by a short fun program, then music and dancing.
Saturday registration will begin at the Alumni Museum at 9:30 AM until 2:30 PM. It is important that all alumni register their attendance for homecoming; this information is used to create the alumni directory. Lunch will be served and an alumni meeting with be held, as well as the “Gathering of Barium Brothers and Sisters.”
A morning worship service will be held on Sunday and will begin promptly at 11:00 AM at Little Joe’s Chapel. Lunch will follow the worship service.
Thank you to all involved who help make Homecoming such a cherished weekend for the alumni of Barium Springs Home for Children!
