At our annual Solie Christmas party we always pick a family to sponsor on behalf of all of our friends. This year we sponsored the family of a little baby girl named Lydia. She is such a special little girl who has struggled almost her entire life. Today, while I was at work Josh had the honor of meeting baby Lydia at her Grandmothers house. He said she was the cutest little thing he has ever seen! She had a little pink bow in her hair and she smiled as soon as he walked in. She was proud to show him that she could now take a few steps on her own while barely holding on to her Grandma's hands!
Lydia's Grandma wanted to make sure to we told everyone involved that she is more thankful than words could ever describe. She has been moved to tears by the generosity of complete strangers willing to help, and she is thankful from the bottom of her heart. She sent Josh home with a couple of wristbands and told us that if anybody wanted updates on Lydia we could follow her caring bridge website: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/lydialockman.
I also wanted to thank all of our amazing friends for joining us in this new tradition that means so much to me. This is what the meaning of Christmas is all about!
