Christine Beaini was born in Detroit, Michigan and moved to California with her family when she was 9 years old. Tragically, her father died in a car accident when she was 13, which greatly impacted her and her family’s lives. It was this event in Christine’s own life that has grown her heart for children who suffer in life through no fault of their own, just life’s circumstances. She went on to earn a teaching degree and taught elementary school for 38 years. Christine and her husband, Sami have been happily married for nearly 43 years now. After 20 years of marriage, God opened the doors for them to adopt and raise two children both from birth.
Soon after retiring, Christine began volunteering at He Intends Victory where she was appointed Director of Terry’s Kids and Friends. She has been serving for the past 3 years in this capacity and been able and blessed to go on trips to Kenya and Uganda. If fact, she and her husband have the honor and privilege to be sponsoring a young man in Amy’s Friends from Uganda. Christine has a passion for children and says, “Caring about children has been a big part of my life and I love “looking after children” through the work of Terry’s Kids and Amy’s Friends.”
