I wish that everyone who has sent something to Gadese, whether a gift or an email could see her face light up. On Thursday the first gifts arrived. She just kept saying, "oh my gosh, oh my gosh, really?" She wanted me to open them. I refused. Her hands shook slightly and tears welled up in her eyes as she cut open the packages. There is no way I could begin to explain how this felt. You all blessed me so much. I knew she would feel overwhelmed by everyone's generosity. I guess I was taken off guard by how it would effect not only Gadese, but myself and my whole family. Wow! Do you know how awesome it is, what an incredible testimony of God's love when my children ask, "Mom who's that from?" and then for me to say, "I don't know honey, a stranger that was touched by God to help." Do you get how powerful that is?!
Thank you. Your emails, prayers, and gifts have brought so much encouragement to everyone in the Boster house this week.
*To everyone who has sent something- please let us know if you have a blog. Gadese would love to put a face with the people that have blessed her. It would mean a lot to her.
