the gift of presence: how to make a kid feel loved

Proof that physical presence is one of the most important ways to express love to a child: this entry I came across in my Uganda journal.

August 18th, 2014

Tonight at bedtime Macy (6 years old) prayed, “thank you for Tyra and Sophie- that they love us so much that they wanted to come to Uganda with us to help with the adoption.”

She knew we were loved by their presence with us. There’s something to that, I think.

Amen.

Sophie and Tyra sneak in some quality time with the kids before bed time in Uganda. These ladies are such a gift to us.
