Heidi Lucky Presents... "Hangin' With The Homies" 5:30 AM (CST) Every Thursday

By Heidi Lucky
This podcast was created to share the stories of "Home Kids". These are men and women who were raised at Angel Guardian Orphanage in Chicago. This is an opportunity to hear first hand accounts of what life was like growing up in an Orphanage. Some stories are happy, while others are sad. My husband, Norm was there from first grade and graduated HS there. Many like himself are so grateful for A.G.O. as they truly do not know where they would be today if not for A.G.O.
