Well today was the day that we put all of our collected backpacks for foster kids together. And let me tell you...
250 backpacks full, each one has: pajamas, toothbrushes, undies/6 diapers, snacks, stuffed animal/blankets. Each backpack had an age (example 5t girl) and would get a bag with what a 5t girl would need.
The support of the community and you out in blogland was most amazing. I got choked up many times thinking of the little girls and boys who would get the message. Of love, of understanding, of support.
In the shape of a backpack comes a big ole' hug and I am so thankful you all have made the public so very personal.
