Last night was our first evening with the current families in the Interfaith Hospitality Network.  The families were delightful.   While Rob and I sat in the host room watching the Tony’s, we overheard the guests in the hallway giving each other hugs and saying goodnight to one another.   There was a wonderful sense of community among them.   Earlier in the evening, a shy little seven-year-old girl handed me a piece of folded paper.  It was “addressed” to the First Baptist Church volunteers from Samantha:

When saying their goodnight to one another, we heard someone say, “I miss baby Marc”.   Baby Marc turns one year old on Wednesday, and hopefully we will see a few pictures of a birthday cake, balloons, and maybe a little present or two.  What a special occasion to be able to share.

Thank you for making a difference.
