Oh! My dear Toogie I’m crying here in Innsbruck where we are about to leave for a surprise day out as a gift from Amy and Steve. What a wonderful school Avery is in and I would have been crying just listening to the kids singing. Thanks so much for telling us about your family. It’s inspirational! Merry Christmas my friend and I pray 2018 brings many more wonderful memories and blessings. Love 💕 Chris
Thank you Chris. I just looked at the photos from Munich, love them! Keep us up on your travels.
Well, here I sit crying too!! We all feel such a part of your family, love the things you share! I am so glad Avery got her "voice"!! Those computers are wonderful & so is the little girl that prayed & surprised her family. Shoot, here I go crying again. Merry Christmas, my friend.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
You have a kind heart and it shows.
What a wonderful Christmas story and such beautiful memories it will bring your family.. A year ago did you ever dream Avery would be opening with the invocation at "her" program??
No, not at all, but a year ago we didn't even know of this place. Avery went there in August and has done so well. Thank you and all Cuties, for all your encouragement and support of Avery. Merry Christmas!
I am thankful for you that Avery's school is so good. A load has been lifted from the family. Merry Christmas.
Amen, you are so right. Merry Christmas to you too and yours.
This is such a wonderful Christmas present for us all. Yes, I am crying tears of joy for Avery finally being able to talk and for all of you to hear her 'voice'. Thanks so much for sharing.
You know I couldn't keep it to myself, have to spread the joy!
I just love reading of your family adventures. What a blessing that school is!
Amen, I hate to think where she will go after she is too old here, but I will dead and gone by then. I hope by then there is something very good for her there too.
I am so happy for you Toogie. I'm bursting with pride and tears just reading this. It is wonderful to hear how well everyone is dong. Thanking the Lord for all his wonderful blessings. Have a blessed Christmas.
The same wishes to you too, DebB. Hope your little ones get all they're dreaming of.
How wonderful what a blessing all these people are! How exciting for al the children too. So Happy things are going so great! Have a wonderful holiday!
I cannot tell you the sheer joy they have. They get caught up in all the excitement and it just spreads. Kids just wanna be loved and always want a hug, from anyone. One little girl has taken to calling my daughter momma. I think she understands that Ashley is Avery's, Gus and Nora's momma, so she calls her momma too.
Glad tidings and joy for sure! So happy that Avery is doing so well...I know you are bursting with pride.
These kids and their situation sure can humble a person. Everyone needs to experience the love that is in this place.
Toogie, No words can express the joy in my heart from reading and seeing this. Simply ,Glory To God! Love you Lillian
You have said it all, Glory to God!
I love you too. I know this Christmas you have an empty place at the table and you sure miss him but you will get through and enjoy it for your family's sake. Ron is not forgotten because they miss him too. I wish you all the best this Christmas.
Toogie, this is so great. The true meaning of Christmas.
I wish you and your family Merry Christmas and a Happy
I am crying tears of joy!!!
Oh Kathy, you're so sweet. I love my family so much and love to see them all happy.
Merry Christmas to you too!
So glad you were able to write this update for us, I also have tears flowing so trying to write this is challenging. Glad to hear Avery is doing so well at her school and that Nora is very talented as well. I'm glad Gus knows how to talk to about Christmas.
