When I moved to DC, some of my colleagues went in together and adopted a family for the holidays. It was a program run by our school so I am not sure of the exact name but we would get a family of 4 or 5 and a few of us would be responsible for each member of the family. We had to find clothing, an educational item and a toy for the children. We always had a blast doing it and felt so good after that we were bring joy to a family on Christmas day.
This year, I was introduced to the program called, Operation Christmas Child, by one of my fellow blogging friends, Christa, over at Little BGCG. I am cheating just a little here because I have already posted about this program, but still wanted to share it as one of the family traditions Rob and I have started this year and plan to continue as our family gets bigger.
