It's amazing and perfect! The hoodie will be a little big (how he likes them) and it was the number one thing on his wish list. I can't thank you enough knowing this will be a perfect Christmas. I stood staring at the box and thought how it was not just presents, but a loving community that was behind me, giving me love and strength and hope. And how a beautiful elf put this package together. Love you and DGMS!
Your donations to Yes, Virginia do more than make Christmas magic for children. You make emotional magic for their parents. Asking for help is never easy, we all know that. But once asked for, this blogmunity rallies every year to make hearts leap and to deliver smiles where there was only sorrow, sadness, desperation.
Thank you ALL.
We are entering the last push of the sleigh this week - still smiles to bestow and wish lists to fill - so give if you can. What you get in return? Well, go back and read that message again. A wished for hoodie and a Nerf child camera have insured that Christmas came early for that Mom's heart, and her son will wake up to the words "merry and bright" on Christmas Day.
(Oh, and as for that "beautiful elf"? High praise and much appreciated, but, ummmm, Toby sees what I elf in all day long. Not exactly ready for my close-up.)
