Hello awesome foster folks,
I picked up 3 backpacks for my little people (all boys, ages 6, 8, and 11) this weekend. I told them I had some friends that were pretty awesome and my friends put together some things in a brand new backpack for them. They were thrilled. Before they opened them I asked if I could take their picture. They were amazed by how full they were, and how heavy. They were so excited that they got to keep them forever, even before they unzipped them.
All three of them said more than once, 'how did your friends know my favourite things?' They were so pleased with their new blankets, pillows and pillow cases, toys, toothbrush and toothpaste, felts and notebooks, books and stickers, and especially their new backpacks.
As you all know, kids in care don't always have things that are 'theirs' for a variety of reasons, and sometimes things get left behind or misplaced during an unexpected life change. My boys are some of the sweetest, kindest and most wonderful little people ever, and I just want to say thank you to all the people who organized, donated and filled these bags in a way that made my boys feel that someone they didn't even know thought they were special.
Thanks so much for making their day!

Had so much fun this morning at the self-care workshop and am so excited about my new mat and all the lovely ones made today.
It was nice to just chill for a bit and zone out in a craft 😉
