Thank You!

Ken sent out an email to some of his coworkers the other day that asked for donations in helping us raise funds for our adoption.  It was a very hard thing for him to do because he HATES asking for help......for anything!  I told him what Andrea, the director of RR, had told me.  If you don’t ask, you won’t get help.  People may not even know what you are doing and that you may need some help.  You may just find that once they know, they will help!  The worst thing that could happen is no one would help.  Well as you can see by our family sponsorship page, they helped!  It is very humbling, to say the least, that people would be so generous in helping us bring these two kids home! I don’t think there is a way for us to find out the specific people who donated, so please accept this HUGE THANK YOU from us to everyone that donated money to Dania and Josh!  You will know what you did when Ken brings them into work for you to meet.  You will see it in their eyes that they finally have a family and are truly loved!
Again, you will never know what your generosity means to us and thank you so much!! 

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year!!!
I will leave you with some meaningful words from my one of my favorite parts of a Christmas show we watch every year!

Isn't There Anyone Who Knows What 

Christmas is All About? 

The best explanation I ever heard was the one Linus gave to Charlie Brown...

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them,

Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

LUKE 2:8-14
