July 2, 2011 was homecoming day for the Ulysse family(Melinda and her husband) and I (Grandma Pat). It is nice to be settling back in at home again and learning the new routines. The children were all very happy to see our family arrive and we were delighted to see them again as well.
Today we had a birthday party for the children who have birthdays in July and August. There were 6 children to celebrate. Today also celebrates 23 years since HCH received the first child. I would love to know how many children have come and gone through our doors since then but so many are short stays and are never recorded in our records. It is such a privilege to be part of this and to see all the people that God has brought to join our team. Currently we have 5 volunteers with us who are such a blessing.
Thank you to all of you who have supported us with prayers and financial support over the years. A special thank you to Tracy Snyder who is responsible for collecting most of the gifts that the children received today and to our team of cake decorators: Melissa, Liz, John and Andrew.
