Camp to Belong
Today my travels took me to Orange County. I had the opportunity to spend time with an amazing group of foster, kinship, and adopted children. I was honored to be asked as the Inspirational Night Speaker at this event. This wonderful camp is a week long event and is held yearly. It's a place where siblings have a chance to reunite with one another after being placed in different homes. I can not tell you how much each and every camper touched my heart. They really embraced my story and even shared some of theirs with me. I hope I inspired them to never give up on their dreams and understand that their circumstances only make them stronger. I concluded my speech by letting each of the 60 campers know that Luggage of Love brought a new piece of luggage for each one of them to take home. Should any of those campers read this blog entry, I want them to know that I believe in them and should they every need anything I am only an e-mail away. I love you all!
