This Christmas was to have been extra special for us with the birth of our first grandchild last April. He/she would have been eight months old. I was with my son and his wife when the baby was lost to us all. But we got the news last week that our World Vision foster child who's name is Ankita. And so this Christmas, we have been given the gift of a child.
About five years ago, I really did start saying 'NO' to knick-knacks -- not only getting them, but giving them as well. That was the Christmas I discovered World Vision Gifts. They loved the goats, clothing and medical supplies which were donated on their behalf to needy families overseas. I won't be giving things for Christmas -- I'll be giving hope.
