Toby and I mailed off the care packages today. At the post office we saw many people putting children's gifts in boxes to mail for Easter. Our package went out with many others, however I felt a significant weight of value and love go with our simple gifts, not because of the material items but of the connection it would make between us and them. Most of all for the boys I want our care package to bring HOPE for a future. Ms. Sue, our agency director from Celebrate Children International, is headed back to Ethiopia on Monday, April 25 to escort a couple of children home to their forever family. She will have the joy of personally taking several gifts to kids that will be receiving the news that they have also been chosen by a family and receiving their first gift from their new family.
Hey FYI....today is Dan's birthday. Happy Birthday Dan! You are a dad of 5 kids now. Next year we will have 2 more around our table singing “Happy Birthdaaayy, dear Da-ad, Happy Birthday to you!” :o)
Love you, honey...thanks for taking this journey with me.
