Several of our families were blessed with opportunity to attend the Sugar Plum Fairy Tea party hosted by the Western Arkansas Ballet. Our little girls dressed up, made crafts, had their pictures taken and ate sugary sweets with the ballerinas. I can’t show all the pictures of our kids that are in care but one of our families shared a picture of her daughter at the event. The kids had such a fun time and the parents were so grateful to have the experience.
Opportunities like this could be once in a lifetime for a child or youth in care. We are very grateful to WAB for providing the tickets and to our families for taking them to the event. There is a often a lot of focus on gifts for the kids at Christmas but I think letting them have experiences is worth more than a toy. A toy only last for a moment, but a memory can last a lifetime. What a fun way to start the Holidays and ring in the New Year!
