Anyway, we were in the car the other day talking about how we'll need to raise money this year and save our money this year so that we can all go to Rwanda next summer. That discussion led to how we should bring a suitcase of stuff for the kids in his old orphanage. Then out of NOWHERE, he (with great enthusiasm) said, "for my birthday next year I should have all the kids bring shoes instead of presents and we can take them to the kids (in the orphanage)!" My heart melted and I almost had to pull the car over and just cry. He is so generous and so thoughtful and so compassionate. That almost made me cry. And then to think about all of the things we could bring the kids, he thought about shoes. . . I wonder how badly he wanted shoes or shoes that fit or whatever when he lived there.
He's a great kid. I love him! I'm thankful for his big heart! What a guy!
