Hooray for you, Sarah. What a fireball you are! I'm so proud of you for your passion, enthusiasm and intuitiveness to get the job done. You are truly amazing!

I work with a group who makes quilts for foster children. These children need even just ONE thing that is their's no matter where they live. In the foster care system, the kids move residences all too often and they will always have your cuddly blankets to keep them feeling special.

Yes, emancipation at 18 is an awful time for them, too. They lose what little support system they may have. The problems these children face begin young and carry well into their adult years.

I am inspired by you, Sarah.

Thank you.
