When we adopted my two daughters from a children’s shelter, not only were the girls presented to me with trashbags for suitcases but also no jacket or sweater. When asked if they had a sweater (we were on our way to dinner to celebrate our first night as a family) the girls responded by saying there were jackets at the shelter but all the kids were sharing the few that were there. Before dinner, I stopped by the Wal-Mart to buy the girls something warm for the restaurant. Not only were Emily and Angela excited about not having to share the sweaters but were more excited that the sweaters were brand new. Just for them.
We are trying to put the same smile on the faces of the children in group homes, and children shelters to be presented to them in December.
You are invited to join us on September 5, October 3, and November 7 for our We Were You Presents Warm Hearts Jacket & Sweater drop off rally where you can drop off a new jacket or sweater for boys and girls sizes infant to XL.
