This was some sweet time that we got to spend with Aunts, Grandmothers, and uncles. One of the pics below shows Emily with her only great-grandmother that is still living. Our trip to Virginia was spit into two places. In the middle of the trip we were able to meet for my sister-in-law's birthday. We had so much fun while staying with family...Too bad Emily and I were quarantined for a few days in the middle of the trip. It was such a wonderful chance to see everyone and enjoy Thanksgiving!
These are some of the pics from the first part of our trip to Virginia. The basketball pics are of my nephew who is an incredible athlete. It was so fun to finally see one of his games, even though it was just a scrimage...we are so proud of him! We feel so blessed that we were able to spend so much time with our family...being 1o hours away is really hard.

Saving Ivan (a different Ivan:)!
This sweet boy has turned 2 and in 2 very short years he will be transeferred to an adult mental institution unless his family comes for him! He has Apert Syndrome (click his pic to learn more) and is such a smart boy. Please consider giving to increase his grant through RR. Maybe the Lord is calling you to be his forever family! You could change this child's life!
