Cheryl, co-founder, matron and visionary with Colin, her husband, and daughter, Michelle, now our successor in God’s great plan for Shepherd’s Keep, have such joy in thanking our doctors from “Big Shoes” who come around faithfully every single month to examine our babies and prescribe all they need and also manage all blood samples. They are the most incredible group of professionals who deal out their love and compassion in the field they know best!

God bless you Big Shoes team!

Our newborns grow so quickly and beautifully, they are cared for in excellence by Cheryl and her team. A nurse, Mercy and live-in babycare manager, Kelly, and faithful supervisor, Anita–these are all full time positions. We have care givers as well, as many as six on duty at each shift.


There are the running costs which are growing each and every day for which we do fundraise….but always, we believe God is bigger than any problem we may ever have, and trust in Him implicitly, after all, he gave Cheryl a vision, He gave of His wisdom and guidance in each step of the way, and He had Colin, Cheryl and Michelle in the palm of His hands, as we allowed our Heavenly Father to fight each fight for us, and committed this work to Him, only that He may be glorified, that it be nothing of ourselves, but Him in all things, He has kept all of us, staff and their families too.

Through all this, we have had babies placed in countries all over the world, and we know without a doubt, God will keep us always in His plan and care to continue the saving of who are special and precious to Him, the orphans of this world.

Colin has a new website which is interesting to say the least, please visit it at

We thank once again, all visitors, (online and off!) Volunteers (of who we have had many and beautiful people of God who have sown loving seeds into our precious babies), donors, sponsors, prayer warriors, you are wonderful wonderful folk……….

A special thank you to James, who has kept our website up and running all these years, we believe there is an annointing of God on this site as it still, to this day, brings many queries to us via e-mail everyday…mail that has saved lives, saved babies from being aborted after counsel, has allowed many mums find the way to adoption, many folk with aids have come through annonymously for counsel, and many others, all precious folk, thank you James, we love and appreciate you!

God bless you all
