Joy was all over her face..
She wheeled the stroller into drop-in. It was a bitterly cold day and the bundle inside the stroller was barely recognizable…But WE knew who it was! Since we have known Gladys, she has been talking about gaining full custody of her granddaughter who was in the foster care system. She and her husband are housed, receive a pension and were fighting hard to get three year old Amy back. They had a lot of hoops to jump through, but they did it and as she walked into the drop-in a couple of weeks ago, Gladys could barely contain her joy. Once she was freed from the confines of her snowsuit, Amy mirrored her grandma’s big smile and said that she got to live with grandma and grandpa ALL the time now! She talked non-stop about how much she loved being with her grandparents and how happy she was. This couple doesn’t live high-off-the-hog, but they have a lot of love to give this little girl and she has a lot of love to give back. We count ourselves blessed to be a part of their support system!
