Jordan and I had a chance to go to a picnic with a whole bunch of limb different kids and their families this weekend. It was a lot like the impromptu gathering we had last year except this time it was a little further away from our house and we had even more families! It is SO awesome to meet and play with new kids and families.
Jordan got to spend time with a few friends who we talk about often, but don’t often enough. This picture is Jordan with a little friend who Jordan was thrilled to see and get her to giggle. She even shared her doll with her for a little while. It’s kind of funny, but Jordan is almost one of the older kids in the limb different crowd… Or at least she’s the oldest of the little kids!
The best part of our day beyond just the opportunity for all of us to spend time together was flying kites. One of the dads brought a TON of kites so the kids could enjoy the wind and a lot of space. It was so great to see each and every kid fly a kite – hands, no hand, legs, no legs… It didn’t matter. We were an awesome bunch.
Most of our group came together through two different groups: Sammy’s Friends and I-CAN (International Child Amputee Network). We’re so lucky to be connected this way… Without our wonderful kids we’d never have met!
