If you could give any gift...

...what whould you give, and to whom?

If I could give any gift, I would give all the homeless and family-less children at MAW, and all the other adoption centers, a home! I think that every child deserves to have a loving family and a place to stay. Even if you do not spend a lot of time together, I think it is still important to have someone there to tuck you in at night and read you a bedtime story as you drift off to sleep.

As a kid who has spent time in both a family and being an orphan living at MAW, I can say 100% that even things that you might think are not necessary to have parents around, like going to school, really make a difference! Having someone pack you your lunch in the morning and adding an extra treat for you to find during lunch does make going to school just that little bit more special. As does having someone be waiting for you at the bottom of the steps, ready to hear all about your day and roll their eyes as you explain to them how you actually do not have any home work at all for the entire school year and that they definitely do not need to go and bother your teacher by asking them about it...
