Thank You Notes From Angels' Arms Recipients

Many thanks to everyone who donated to provide Christmas gifts for the Angels' Arms family we adopted this year.  And much appreciation to Lisa Rees, Tom Boyd and Jenny Bosworth for all of the behind the scenes work to make this happen.  Here is what the family had to say:

Hello!  My name is Kasondra McDaniel.  I am the foster mother of the Angel Arms home in Ballwin you adopted for Christmas.   I would have loved to buy a nice Christmas Thank you card to send all of my kiddos thank you letters in, but due to us being in Quarantine, we are playing it safe and sending a very grateful email.  Attached is the hand written notes of each foster child that received gifts in my home.   

I feel so very blessed and very relieved to have Angels Arm and your support with Christmas.   This is my first year getting help with Christmas.   It allowed me to not be as stressed and worried about making my children feel so very blessed and loved.   Christmas is not about the presents, the donations helped buy Christmas dinner, and purchase a game system that we all get to play together.   Your donation allowed the kids to be kids and actually get the gifts they dream of for Christmas.   All of the bright, wide eyes, and opened gasping mouths while opening  those presents, were because of you and all of your generous hearts.   I want my kiddos to know they are loved and lots of people are here to support them.   Thank you so very much!
