Birthdays are a special part of a child’s life and we love to celebrate them here at Maria’s Big House of Hope. Last month, we invited the children to help us celebrate all of our October birthdays! It was one of the BIGGEST birthday parties I have ever been to! We had cake, balloons, and gifts for everyone. The children had a blast playing with their new toys and eating the delicious cake. Many of them even had second helpings!
Some of my favorite moments at the party included watching Nathalies’s eyes light up at all the new toys and seeing Judah’s great big grin! I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw Leith holding onto a fistful of candy and I loved how Yasmine immediately put on her new pink headband and decorated her face with stickers! We all had so much fun celebrating together.
As I think back to all the fun I had with the children that day, I am humbled and honored to have had the privilege of celebrating with them. My hope is that they will carry these sweet memories with them and always remember how loved and treasured they are here at Maria’s Big House of Hope and at Show Hope’s three other Special Care Centers. I pray also that in the years to come, these precious little ones will be able to celebrate their birthdays with a forever family of their own! Thank you for all the ways you make this care possible through your generous giving.
