This is my special friend, Kaylee. She loves Sock Monkeys and she loves Candy.
Not necessarily in that order.......
SURPRISE! There was a basket at my front door. It was from Kaylee.
To her very own Halloween Candy she had attached cards, to be given out with the Sock Monkeys.
This was her message:
Kaylee is a very special girl. She knows about childhood pain and what it is like to be in the hospital. Born to an alcoholic mother, Kaylee spent the first year of her life in a Russian hospital. The second year of her life was spent in a Russian orphanage where she learned as a one year old that there was never enough food, and she'd better scramble to get what she could. Always hungry, always cold, never loved. Not a life for a baby. Or anyone for that matter.
Because of some powerful inner strength, and/or a miracle, Kaylee defied statistics. She lived.
Meanwhile, far away in California, two parents had three boys, and they decided a little girl would make their family complete. Off to Russia they went. And who did they find in the orphanage?
Blond little Raimonda.......AKA.......Kaylee.
Kaylee's message to the children is the message we hope she feels. Our Savior, Jesus Christ, who suffered all pain, shares hers, and although life is sometimes very difficult and not fair, He knows. And there really are angels who watch over us.
