For the next several days I will be posting about the World Congress of Families. This year it is being held in Sydney, Australia. Remember how we helped to raise funds for Angela to attend? She is sending daily reports of the presentations, interviews she is able to have, and more. I am excited to share with you what she is experiencing. There are so many around the world - politicians, religious leaders, community organizers, trained professionals, and others - who are dedicated to defending the family. I will try to post each day's events in order so you are not reading them backwards as you scroll down. I have broken up Angela's summaries into several posts so it isn't overwhelming to see a HUGE post. Remember, if you have any questions you would like her to ask when she gives her interviews, leave them in the comments and I will pass them along to her.
It seems these three are always together lately - making messes, reading books, playing outside. The two girls dote on their little brother (don't we all) watching over him one minute, giving him reasons to kick or pinch them the next. Today they were content to play, happily sliding down the slide, rolling down the hill, and riding their scooters or in Bubba's case his tractor. This brief moment of sibling affection tugs at my heart. Despite the constant battle over toys or attention they really do love each other. I hope their friendship will last their whole lives.
