The Heritage of Hope Ball

Some very good friends of ours hosted a costume ball to raise money for their adoption.  It was a wonderful night of good old-fashioned family fun.

As I looked around the room I was reminded that families have fun as families.  Our culture thrives on separating parents, siblings, and children.  Proms are specifically "teen" events. 

Going back to family dances where I can dance with a 6 year old, a 15 year old, a 20 year old, my sister, and my dad in succession is a jewel missing from modern day moments.  If you shudder when you think about dancing with families... you are missing something special.
