Long Island Paying it forward…more Christmas Magic…

This was posted on my friend Rachel’s FB page…thank you Rachel for being part of this Christmas Magic:
 
Four days ago on Facebook I posted an appeal for help for a family in our community. The response I received was overwhelming and uplifting, friends and strangers within our community asked “how can we help?’ A man knocked on my door last night with his 9yr old daughter who used her pocket money to buy gift for a family in need, people have knocked on my door and left gifts outside. I am proud of our community for reaching out to help; it reminds me there is still so much good in this world. As a result on your generosity we have around $600 in gift certificates and cash, gifts for the two little boys, and their Mom and Dad. I have a dining room table that is 10ft long and piled high with gifts. , Christmas lights, decorations, clothes, winter jackets, snow boots, Radio Flyer Rocking Horse, food, snow toys, and games.
A Family who thought Christmas day would be an ordinary Tuesday in their house will be in for a big surprise . A little boy will no longer wake up and think Santa forgot him! Thank you to everyone who donated items, this family is going to have a Christmas beyond their wildest dreams!
I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year

About Kim

My name is Kim Marino and I have been practicing as a licensed speech and language pathologist since 1993. I work on Long Island providing diagnostic evaluations and services to children from birth to age 21. My experience is vast and am proud to say that I work with children that may present with articulation and phonological concerns, oral motor feeding concerns, Down Syndrome feeding, cognitive rehabilitation, auditory processing delays, receptive language delays, cleft palate feeding and sound development and expressive language delays. Most importantly, I am the mother of four amazing children and am happily married to my childhood sweetheart. I feel blessed to have my four children and so lucky to share this journey in life with my husband. I always had it somewhere in my head that I wanted to develop a blog or a website of some sort so that I could provide families with an additional resource....so that parents could help their little ones become a better communicator. And as I was developing this blog....I realized that I also needed to share the stories about my life and my children....and the funny things along the way that help to keep me smiling. Whether you are a working mother or not...finding balance between home, children and life can be a challenge....I hope that my blog helps to bring a smile to your face..and also some tools to help you help your little or big one. I hope you enjoy! Kim
