"We got into the water together and I swear that kid must have bobbed up and down at least 57 times.

She said the blessings and talked about how very excited she was to go to camp, and also how scared, and how thankful she was for her family, naming each one of us. She said she knew that so many people love her. She said she knew she could say things there, to God and to me, that she couldn’t say elsewhere."
