Yesterday as I took a few minutes to reflect on all the things that I am truly thankful for, you guys were at the top of my list. I mean that! Thank you all so very much for journeying with me over the past year. Thank you for your kind words, support, encouragement. Thank you for sharing the posts each week and talking about and inquiring about all the kids we have posted. And oh my gosh…thank you to each and everyone one of you that have stepped up and helped us to provide Christmas for so many of our #ForeverFamilyFriday kids. As of today you all have supplied ALL gifts for 17 kids. We are getting closer each day to reaching our goal! How exciting is that. Please please, please continue to share the wish lists so EVERY one of these kids will have a reason to smile and believe in the goodness of others this Christmas season.

Please meet Nathan! He is 16 and lives in Arizona. Nathan is easily entertained by different craft projects – especially making slime. He has a great sense of humor and delights in teasing people and getting teased. When Nathan isn’t spending time outside, you can find him playing video games on his Xbox. Nathan’s favorite class is science, and one of his best memories of school was when he built a replica of Earth with moveable plates to understand how earthquakes happen. Nathan loves chocolate milk, and he will never turn down a visit to his favorite restaurant—Golden Corral. We will have to introduce him to Taco Bell!

Nathan looks forward to meeting his forever family. He would like to be adopted by a family that can offer security, stability, and love. Can you be that family for Nathan? Do you know someone that could? For more information please contact Heather at [email protected].
