Heart Family Christmas Party 2010

Last year, we attended the annual Heart Family party and HAD to go back again this year. My post last year can be found here: http://listeningthruthenoise.blogspot.com/2009/12/heart-family-christmas-party.html

It was just as wonderful this year as before! The added perk was I recognized people and they recognized us... having read my blog and kept up on Gabriella. It was a lovely time, and I cannot sum it up any better than I did last year, so I will copy what I wrote....

"The best part of the whole party for me though was being around families that have struggled in one way or another the same way we have..... and will. It was nice to not feel like such an exception to the rule- normal American family: one dad, one mom, a boy and a girl, dog and house. We used to be that less than a year ago, but are no longer. I was surrounded by little ones and teens with large scars on their chest, developmental delays or disabilities, feeding tubes or oxygen.... and you know what? It was like watching an elite group of the most amazing kids God ever created. All just as deserving of the snow and Santa and junk food as any other kid, but able to have it in an event given especially for their amazing little hearts."


Enjoy our pictures!
