We were lucky enough to get to adopt another family this year. It is true what they say, giving is better than receiving. I think my kids, at least the older two, really got that concept a lot more this year. We got to hand deliver the gifts to our family who has been allowed to live in the managers trailer in the trailer park. Such a sweet family. Such grateful kids. And an awesome experience for us. We had the most fun shopping for them this season.
We found this family through 45 & Hope. It is an awesome organization that helps feed the homeless along 1-45, and supports them year round. If you would like to see how you can help or volunteer you can go to their website: http://www.45hope.org/.
We have been so blessed with so much more than we deserve and it is nice to help when we can. It was a great start to our Christmas.
