Thank you! She loved that Father took the time out to ask her before giving her the host, making sure he had her special one set aside. Its been a challenge at school and church, with this campaign being called 1 in 13, it hits home, Natasha is one in 12, in her class!!! So she truly is the only one!!!!!!
