I want to send out a huge thank you to the members of Life Church in Ava. In a world where so many seem to be more Bah Humbug than Merry Christmas they prove that there are still so many good people with big hearts. Life Church in Ava sponsored a Christmas party for the foster children of the 44 Circuit today. Each foster child received a large backpack or rolling suit case, pair of jeans, shoes, coat, and at least two toys. In addition all of the foster babies received packages of diapers and a handmade baby blanket. A wonderful meal of hamburgers and hotdogs was provided. The children were able to play games and the gifts were handed out by none other than Santa himself. Afterwards each foster family received a large sack of groceries and their choice of a turkey or ham.
As a foster mom I can't even tell you how heartwarming it was to see the smiles on the children's faces. Seeing all of the children on the stage singing and knowing that each had their own story and pain was enough to almost bring tears to my eyes. We do our best for these children but it is difficult with so many. For the people at Life Church to do what they did was so heartwarming and appreciated. They took the names of each foster child and made their own tree. In less than one day every single name was gone. That just proves the generosity of these people.
Thank you so much Life Church. God bless you for all you have done. You are angels to us and these children. Merry Christmas!
