The gherkins have big news! The family we are sponsoring has now arrived!
Most of the gherkins group was able to meet them at the airport, even though the arrival was delayed until late in the night. It was wonderful to finally see their big smiles in person!
Thanks to the generosity of so many people, the family is settled into a furnished home, with all their basics provided for–from furniture, to kitchen supplies, to clothing and toys. Volunteers spent several days setting up the house so the family would find it welcoming and ready for their arrival. And many people donated quilts and beautiful supplies for the brand new baby, born shortly before the family departed for Canada!
Now begins the process of learning about a new home in Canada! And about snow.
