Adam's Christmas Stocking Giving
As you all know this Christmas we all missed our sweet Adam. It being the first Christmas without Adam physically here we wanted to figure out a way to remember him.
As Emily and I were talking one night we were both lost on what to do with the presents we had bought for Adam and his stockings we had stuffed. We wanted to find a way for the girls to remember their brother and to understand why Santa came to deliver presents for Adam, we also wanted Andrew to have a way to feel his brothers presence, and we all wanted to give back to a very deserving teen in remembrance of Adam.
Adam had such a giving spirit. He wanted to see everyone happy and always considered others. He was blessed to have experienced so much during his short time here and wanted others to have those same experiences. This year and every year to follow we want his light to shine through so when Emily and I were talking a beautiful sign from our boy fell right into our lap. Something we all needed this holiday season! A blessing we prayed for that turned into the idea to give away Adam’s stocking each year.
We asked for nominations from our Strong Like AK community. From that request, we have received and read through many touching stories and we were able to pick one child that we thought Adam would be so happy to bless.
Each year we plan to keep this new tradition of giving away Adam’s stocking as way to remember our precious boy and bring holiday cheer to a well deserving teen!
