"We wrote the song to make people think about what homelessness is like from a kid’s point of view. It does its job well. Everybody who sees the video bursts out into tears."

Child Protection Day is being recognized April 5th at the Texas State Capitol, and many organizations working to protect at risk youth have something more in common than vision. The song “Nobody’s Child” has been adopted by many organizations throughout Texas, to promote awareness of the plight of kids aging out of the foster care system.
“These kids are among the most vulnerable members in our society,” says songwriter Amanda Williams. “We wrote the song to make people think about what homelessness is like from a kid’s point of view. It does its job well. Everybody who sees the video bursts out into tears.”
The first organization to pick up on the song was Lubbock based Sondra’s Song who is hosting a week-long fundraising and awareness campaign featuring appearances by the Grammy nominated Williams starting with singing the National Anthem at Texas Tech Red Raiders vs Lubbock Christian baseball game April 14th and culminating in a public concert at The Legacy on April 19th. attribution - http://sondrassong.org/events.php
The song “Nobody’s Child” is also featured on the front page of the Austin based Texas Council of Child Welfare Boards website and is being regularly shown to potential foster parents who are considering taking an older child into their homes. attribution - http://tccwb.org
