Seneca is dressed for a party!

Last night was the Christmas party for foster families. Even our older kids look forward to this party.

Food was colorful and plentyful

There was turkey and ham and all of the trimmings, but the big event, of course, was the visit from Santa.

Even Raven was willing to chat with Santa for a moment. Santa asked about his interests: art? No. music? No, sports: Yes!

Each child is given a stocking when they have finished talking with Santa. Sunbonnet Sue Quit Club members sew stockings each year and they are varied, fun and colorful. And each is filled with goodies and surprises. Headphones, mittens, gum, deodorant, and jacks were among the favorite items for Seneca and Raven.

For us it is an opportunity to see children who were in our foster home in the past, as we typically care for children when they first come into care until a more permanent placement can be found for them. We found six children who had stayed with us and there were many hugs as the kids reconnected.
