Happy Thanksgiving!

Randy and I recently met with a reporter from the Hill Country Weekly.  Nicole is a very special person and we had a great time visiting with her about our journey with the Thornton family.  Her well written article was published on Thanksgiving Day.

Thank you, Nicole for your caring and kindness. 

Be sure to check out Nicole's blog "Love You...Up to the Moon" as she chronicles her little niece's fight with cancer.

We want to take this opportunity to once again thank all of you for your support in this mission.  While we may wish that our “system” allowed Mr. Thornton to have a job, it doesn’t and we have to live with that reality.  Because he loves these kids so much and has a desire to see them break the bonds of poverty and live productive lives, we have the opportunity to help him in this mission.  By providing a home for them to live in, you have given them the opportunity to learn and grow and thrive. 

If you would like to help the Thornton’s have a Merry Christmas again this year, there are several ways you can help.  Tax-deductible monetary donations can be made to St. John - designated to the “Thornton Fund-Christmas.”  If you would prefer to do some shopping for Mr. Thornton or one of the kids, you can contact us for suggestions.

Have a great Thanksgiving Weekend!
Until next time...
