Counting Blessings

It's Thanksgiving... a time to count one's blessings,

And count we did. We've come up with at least 55 so far. Fifty-five precious little ones entrusted to us for this season of their lives. We're so thankful for each of them, and we know if we kept counting our blessings, the number would grow even larger!

But today, we just want to remember how thankful we are for each and every one of them...

... for Raegan, who is not nearly as afraid of new things and experiences as she once was.

 ...for Judah, who had his own private Thanksgiving feast upstairs.  (Unfortunately, he's in medical isolation, so we brought the party to him!)

 ...for Ethan, who certainly knows what to do with a good Chicken leg.

 ...for Tony, who can see the world a little more clearly for the first time.

 ...for Robert, who approaches each day with such joy and enthusiasm that it spreads.

 ...for Vincent, who makes us laugh with his silly antics.  Like carrying around a pumpkin!

...for Samuel, who's tender heart always finds a way to make people feel loved.

Want to see more of our many blessings?  We've just added a scrapbook for today's Thanksgiving feast!


  1. To all the kids and those who love and care for them each day - Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! As we celebrate Kevin's first Thanksgiving with us, we're reminded of how thankful we are for New Day. We love you all and are praying for you!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving to you all!!

    Sending thankful thoughts and prayers to all at New Day and that you may continue to give and receive abundant blessing for many Thanksgivings to come.

    Hugs & Love from Atlanta, GA
