One of my girls at Gwen's Girls is having a birthday. She's turning 17 and she's a mom of a toddler. (I think Tyshaun is almost 2 by now.) I want to get her a gift that all of the other girls can share (like a cookie cake), because it's SO hard to get just one thing for one girl. It's like saying which one of your kids you love the most.
OR I want to get something that I can buy 13 of and maybe she gets the big one. Like a journal or something like that.
I wrote all of their birthdays down, but there's no guarantee they'll be in the group home when their birthdays actually come around, so I really have to live in the moment with this group.
So I want her birthday to be like EVERYBODY'S birthday, but I also want to make her feel special.
P.S. If you haven't guessed by now, mentoring is going well!
