SIBLINGS RECONNECT THANKS TO SUPPORTERS LIKE YOU!
Ivan (13) and Allie (10) entered foster care after their mother passed away. They had been separated for approximately one year.
At a recent visit to the park, Ivan threw a football in the air over the playground and signaled for Allie and the Camp Connect team to try and catch it. They ran in circles and flailed their arms in an attempt to catch Ivan’s great football throw. It gave him a sense of pride and happiness.
Later on the swings, Allie challenged Ivan to see who could swing higher. Ivan, pretending to be scared of heights, let his little sister win.
Afterwards they pulled up to Allie’s favorite restaurant for dinner. Next to the restaurant was a frozen yogurt shack. Ivan said he had never tasted frozen yogurt before. Without hesitation, they rushed into the store and were mesmerized by all of the flavors and toppings. They both smiled as they tasted it. Ivan said, “I have to admit – yogurt didn’t sound like a good treat. It sounded like a healthy breakfast. But frozen yogurt is AWESOME!”
