I am new to where I live and the people here have really taken me and my family under their wings. I have been worried about how I would have a few things to give my kids for Christmas and within the past week, I have gotten 5 phone calls/e-mails from some of the people I have worked hard with to get established telling me that they have all purchased gifts for my kids as well as my SO and me. I have told them all that I am blessed to already be adopted and thanked them and they told me no, we are still giving these things to you. You and your family need them.....I know that there are others out there that need something more than we do, I just don't know what to do. They won't take no for an answer!

I know how you feel. Last year when my DH lost his job, and was out of work the entire month of Dec, we had lot of friends and family help us. And you start to feel like, with things coming from all sides, people might think you are trying to see how much you can get! But that is SO not the case! I can see that just by the question.. Accept the gifts and be sure to let each one know how grateful you are. My Aunt told me once, when we were first starting out and people were helping us (and I worried about this then too), that your turn WILL come and you will pay THESE people back by helping the NEXT person or people when you do have the money. Just never forget this kindness!
