a home for the holidays

I'm so excited about the opportunity we have this Christmas to make a difference. We are thrilled to be a part of the program offered by DHS to welcome a foster child into our home to celebrate Christmas with us. We get to love on a kiddo without a home, and show them what a family is all about. I pray that we can bless this sweet child and open their heart to family. Even though my kids are too young to really understand what this will mean, I hope that it still makes an impact even on us as their parents. It's such a great reminder of what Christmas is really about. I want to really start a tradition to do something great for children who are in need. I want my kids to look forward to giving back every year and Christmas being more than Santa, presents and selfishness.

We're still anxiously waiting for our assignment, and then I'm rushing off to Christmas shop for our foster child. Nothing beats shopping at the last minute huh?

Please if you would, say a prayer for the child that we are placed with. That his/her heart will be open and they will be blessed by spending the day with us.

Can't wait to share more with you about this amazing opportunity we've been given!!
