Christmas 2014

Mary and I had a great time celebrating an early Christmas with our niña’s in Sonoyta, Sonora, Mexico.  They each got a toy, an article of clothing and a stocking stuffed with goodies.  The full stocking was a surprise to their culture since this is just normally a wall decoration.   They also loved the hats, an idea that Mary had.  Dale and Kathy Russom, cousins in Little Rock contributed towards the gifts – Dale has visited the orphanage on a Mexico house building trip with me and really enjoyed Said, the smallest niña.  My special buddy is Sergio – the two year old.   He is usually around during the day when I am working there while the others are in school so we are getting close.   Every time we arrive, all of the kids give me a hug – proof that every gift you give will be returned 10 fold.
