Feliz Dia de Ninos!

Today Children’s Day is celebrated in Honduras. I just hung up the phone with Noel, and his younger siblings, Lizzie and Maicol. They were calling to thank us for the pinata we had bought, and they were filled with such excitement and appreciation! It reminds me once again that small gestures can bring such joy to others.

Tom and I will spend some time today thinking of the many children we have been  blessed to have met during the past 10 years. Unfortunately, we cannot remember all their names because some were fleeting moments in our lives. Yet others have touched our hearts so deeply and we think of them as  “our children”, along with the six we have here in the states.

May all the children we have met, and will meet, feel our love today and every day throughout the year.
