MDD is in counseling. The counseling center she goes to also has a lot of kids who have CPS involved in their lives. Well, the family services coordinator had a LOT of gifts donated and each counselor was asked to come in and pick out a few things for each client and their siblings.
DH took MDD to counseling tonight and came home with a giant bag of presents for all 4 kids!
We let them each pick 1 gift to keep (SD chose art supplies, DS chose Darth Tator, MDD chose a lego friends kit, and YDD chose a Barbie Razor scooter). The rest we are giving away to a family friend who is in a tough financial spot.
We didn't ask for any Christmas assistance, in fact we've been done with our Christmas shopping since before December 1st.
It was a nice surprise and it's going to allow us to better help a family friend :)
