Backpacks

If I cannot sleep tonight, I may as well be productive.  We are so grateful for the gift card for the kids to pick out their own backpacks, and for school supplies donated by DHS.  This is our last year to get free supplies, and they were sweet to include Alex who had already been adopted.

  
Someone else gave me a gift card for them to get new school shoes!

  
We so appreciate such support in what we feel to truly be a calling to gather these particular kiddos as our children.

While I am at it at 2 in the morning, did I mention they made us this awesome welcome home sign?!

  
I love those guys!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper. This is not an official Web site of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
