Despite my best efforts to delay this day, December has arrived!
There is so much to do to get ready for Christmas and I have a couple of December birthdays to prepare for too.
This December I have the added delight of having Primo with us for Christmas. My girls are very excited about buying him little gifts and making sure he has a stocking to hang at the fireplace.
When I think about Primo's parents being without him and his siblings this Christmas I feel the urge to alleviate some of their suffering with gifts. But, what to give? I tend to go over board when I know someone is in true need during the holidays. I send anonymous Christmas cards full of grocery, mall and gas gift cards.
Every Christmas I wonder, why shouldn't I spend the same amount of money on families in trouble or in severe need of comfort, as I spend on my own family?
I also think it would be nice for Primo to give his siblings a gift for Christmas.
I'm not sure what the etiquette for gift giving and foster care is exactly, is there such a thing?
I'm thinking I will be best off giving a small personalized gift to Primo's parents, any ideas? And what about his siblings?
