Writing Thank You Cards in the Hodes House

Yesterday the kids in my home were helping, writing thank you cards to
everyone who went to the Denver dinner (“Dinner for Unconditional Love“).

Daguma, seated in the gray chair with shirt on in the top photo took
off his shirt to show off his new back for the 2nd photo.

3 of the kids in the photo have undergone successful spine surgery in Ghana.
