***Note: NONE of the children pictured or in video are foster children... The young lady in the last clip is my friend's daughter.. gotta keep their privacy on the down low, ya know***
PerfectMoment1: Remember our darling placements Mannie and Sunshine from last summer? With the help of a wonderful social worker I was able to get in touch with his Mom and he was able to to join us. Can I just say what an absolute joy it was to see my sweet little boy?! He remembered me and I got big hugs and sugars. *Tears* Sooo awesome!! They have all been together since leaving our home and are doing wonderfully, by the way. Yay!
PM2: The event was on the field.. wicked COOL!!!
PM3: The cheerleaders and players on hand giving autographs and posing for pictures were all so kind and generous..
(Yes, that one was for you, honey..)
PM4: I was beyond impressed at how down to earth Tebow (#15) and all the other players and staff were throughout the event. Since we don't currently have kiddos, I got to sit back and watch them all interact. It was a hot day, my friends, but their energy levels never dropped. First up in this clip.. Tebow's activity. His task was to hand the ball off to the kids and they were supposed to dive for it onto the mat. This little guy had his own style.. Panning over to #54 .. His kids were to tackle the big blue thing, knock the football off of and run for a touch down. Again, another little man doing his own thang:
PM 5: Now I know exactly what it looks like to almost score a touchdown at Mile High.. in flip flops....
PM8: I witnessed (okay, I admit .. I did partake) in the very very best way to end an event on a hot day at Mile High Stadium...
In just two wonderful hours I got to see my darling Mannie (and hug and kiss all over him), cruise around the most amazing field at the greatest football stadium ev-er (biased, moi?!), see firsthand the quality and integrity my Broncos are made up of (even more proud to wear orange and blue)..
..but best of all...
I got to be a small part of making some very awesome children's dreams come true.
