The Good News

Today I decided to share several 'good news' stories. Monday, the story will not be so good. So enjoy today!!

This first video comes from my blogger friend, Esbee, at Life In Forsyth. Like her, I am used to seeing one interpreter in church, but nothing like this - a CHOIR of signers!

The next story comes from my own home town. As I mentioned in this past Monday's blog, the circus was in town. One morning, prior to the first show of the day, the circus folks invited children with visual impairments for a 'touch tour'. Read the story and watch the video linked below, and you will see what the tour meant for the children!

A Big Top With A Big Heart

And finally, have you heard of the Grottoes? Here is an excerpt from their website:

The Grottoes of North America Humanitarian Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization to help bring "Special Smiles" to children with special needs by providing much-needed dental care for them. The program helps cover the costs of dental treatment, including hospital and anesthesia costs when needed, for children with Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy (and related neuromuscular disorders), Organ Transplant recipients or those with Mental Retardation.

Even if your child has dental insurance, the program can act as a second insurance, often picking up co-pays or other expenses not covered by your primary insurance.

Check out the contact page, select your state from the drop down box and you can see if there is a representative in your area. But even if there isn’t, this organization can assist, and their website will tell you how.

I hope you have a great weekend and find more 'good news' along the way.
