I told them about the video that inspired us to adopt in the first place (which I mentioned here Lucy Lane's Gotcha Day"). So may of them went home and watched it and even showed their parents. They came back to school telling me how they too cried when they watched it!
Today they surprised me with a check for...
to put toward our adoption! WOW! I was so stunned!
So, to my sweet "Greenies," thank you for your sweet smiles, constant encouragement, and for making it a joy to come to work every single day. You are truly a special group and I will never forget you. I know you will achieve great things in life. But above all, I hope that you will remember the most important things I tried to teach you (and it has NOTHING to do with ancient cultures!), and that is to be a person of good character. Be kind to others. Thats what's important. I love you!
