Last Friday and this Wednesday we had the opportunity to celebrate both Sam and Ava's birthdays. We do this in a special way by allowing each adolescent to choose a restaurant to go to for a special lunch. Their families are invited and asked to bring photos and key stories to share! What a gift to celebrate and hear about the early years of when each adolescent was growing up and how the way they were when they were little so affected and develops the way they are now!
It was such a blessing for me to go out with each adolescent and their family for their birthday. It has been a way to celebrate each individual, to reflect on the past year, and to celebrate God's care and particular love for each of the students in our Adolescent community!
