It's official.. our boys are on a soccer team... in a real league... against normal community kids! For a kid from a children's home... this is a BIG DEAL.
I can't even begin to describe how thankful I am that they have been given this opportunity. I could write forever and ever about all the ways that being a part of this team will build into their lives, hearts and souls.
We had our first game on Thursday... and despite kids twice their size.. and a field 3 times larger than the sport court they normally practice on.. they played great! In the end they lost 3-5 but we all went home happy and excited for the next game.
