When I asked my daughters, Lindsey, 17, and Leeann, 13, if they wanted to help with Christmas boxes for kids in Ukraine they enthusiastically said "Yes". Lindsey is president of her high school Beta Club and Leeann is involved in a program called Peer Helper at her school. They both took the initiative and got the projects up on running. They love their brother Daniel so much and to think that he very easily could still be there alone in that orphanage having nothing or no one to share Christmas with sends shivers down their spines. This is what they had to say: “The most significant experience in our lives has been the adoption of our younger brother, Daniel. Our family adopted him from Ukraine about five years ago.  He was nine months old and weighed only twelve pounds. He had cleft lip and palate. He has taught us so many lessons simply by living. He has been faced with challenges in his short life that many of us will never experience; while in the orphanage he was starving, ill and all alone yet somehow he has managed to blossom into a beautiful boy full of energy and vitality. He wakes every morning with a smile on his face and a, "Good morning, how was your sleep?" He can often be heard saying things such as, "Isn't it a beautiful day" and "Now, this is the life!" He has inspired us to try and become people who make a difference in the world.

We want to say "Thank You" to His Kids Too! for helping us make a small difference in the lives of others.”

 

From the Director: Lindsey and her High School Beta club sent 130 Christmas 'shoe box gifts' to Ukraine. We thank them for their generous support in helping make a difference in the lives of so many orphans.
