Blankets delivered to Ukraine

Grants blankets (made for his Eagle project) arrived in Ukraine in January. Anya sent us pictures of one of the classes at an orphanage in Kremenchuk that recieved the blankets! Cute kids - beds before and after : )










And she was able to deliver Christmas presents to Marina and Ivan (Anya was sick), these were the kids we hosted 2 1/2 years ago! Can't believe I haven't seen them for so long, I think of them often. Anya has been allowed back to our orphanage a few times now, but this was the first time she was able to see "our kids". We wrote a letter and she wasn't allowed to deliver it to the kids, but she said they were happy and surprised that we remembered them! About broke my heart. Ivan at least still seems to have that twinkle in his eyes and Marina won't smile because of her teeth - oh she needs braces so badly - but beautiful as ever, even with her sad eyes.

Those sure do brighten up their cots. Oh I know they were thrilled to recieve such warmth! What a great boy you have- and what a great way to connect his family to his Eagle project.
Thanks for sharing, I just love it!

What a wonderful project for Grant to undertake. So proud of what he's accomplished! How thrilling for the kids to have those.

That is a wonderful project and I am so happy to see pictures of the kids. So wish we could have met them when they were with you. Love your heart, you inspire me.
