As I have written before, M and I wanted to celebrate this holiday season. One way we decided to do this was to fulfill the Christmas wishes of a DCFS child. It felt nice to make the Christmas dreams of a child come true as a way of honoring the memory, albeit privately, of the child we lost. So, we were given the wish list of a little boy named Keion. He wanted a skateboard and some GI Joe figures. We are so clueless when it comes to buying stuff, it was pretty funny, but we managed to pull together 3 GI Joe figures, a skateboard, knee, wrist and elbow pads (safety first!), and a Blackhawks sweatshirt.
It was fun to do, and I think it is a tradition we will continue. I hope little Keion enjoys his Christmas.
