Happy Birthday Meron!!

Today is a special day at the Hoffman House - Meron is 1 year old today. When we think back over the last year of her life it can be a little overwhelming. She has overcome so much - we all have overcome so much - but we have all grown through it.

It has been a life-changing process to watch this little girl come in to our lives and touch the lives of so many. She is truly a blessing and a gift.

We celebrated last week with a big party at the park with a bunch of Meron's friends. Meron had declared it a "no gift" party and had asked people to donate to a couple of different organizations that do work for orphans.

Thank you so much to everybody who came out to celebrate this year of life with us - we're not trying to rush this "growing up" thing but we do look forward to celebrating many more birthdays with all of our friends and family.
