About the Book

Where We Found Home was inspired by Alyson’s time in Kenya, and more specifically, her time spent seeing how one of the children’s homes she came into contact with operated. The founders’ vision and dedication was truly unique and inspiring, and the children’s stories of how they came to be taken into the home were equally inspiring because of the incredible odds many of them were able to survive against. This book tells their story in a way that young children will be able to understand while captivating their attention.

About the Author

Alyson L. DaCosta was born in New Hampshire, grew up in Massachusetts, and eventually made her way to Kenya. It was during her time in Kenya that she witnessed children having been abandoned, orphaned, or choosing to leave their homes, and saw poverty at truly sobering level. But she also saw many individuals, families, and organizations trying to enact positive change. Visiting with these organizations and helping with children where possible, she was able to hear the many stories of hardship and hope that always seemed to coexist together. Where We Found Home is one story she has been honored to tell that highlights the restoration of abandoned children. Her wish is to continue telling stories like this one to urge all of us to do what we can for others with what we have been given. For more information about the author, please visit
