I often shop at Hallmark in State College. This was my first time ordering online. There were two weeks of calls trying to get the correct book as well as spelling of my niece's first/last name and correction of who the book is from. Everything was taken care of and I received my order. I have been shopping early this year for Christmas gifts. This little girl means the world to me. she turned 4 in August. At just a tender age of 1 1/2 she was taken away from her home. It was devastating, words could not express the pain in my heart when I learned she was in foster care and everytime I called she was sleep or with her father who was told a different story everytime. To make a long...story short this special little girl is with her father, in preschool, can count to 60, knows her ABC's, can sing them to you, her address, phone number and lets not talk about the educational games, etc. she is a wiz. I thank God she wants for nothing. To meet her is special. There is something about her that makes everyone who comes in contact with falls in love with her. Even her doctors made a fuss over her. she is very smart, wonderful manners, and always out going. As her Auntie I consistently encourage her to be the best she can be, strive for the highest goal, and she can become anything her heart desires. That includes President of the United States of America. No child should settle, feel they cannot excell or not as good as their classmates. Life has its challenges, yet there are non she cannot overcome and learn from her experiences. This book will encourage her along the journey of life. When times are challenging she can go to this book, it will be read to her anytime she wants at the same time teach her to learn the words and what they mean. I have taught her to know...even the Bible speaks "And a child shall lead them." Hallmark does so much for children. The skeleton picture was taken at Great Adventure's Halloween Special, October 2019.
