This year, we anticipated Christmas in order to celebrate the magic of the season with the children of the Centre. The 8th of November 2009 was a day full of joy and love, which neither the children nor the ADDHU staff will soon forget.



During the afternoon, we decorated the house and we made a beautiful Christmas tree, with lots of light and color! We cooked a big Christmas turkey with mashed potatoes, and we made 3 kg of traditional Portuguese sweet rice, which was a huge success among the children! For the first time, these children celebrated Christmas like a real family, and we were touched by their happiness and gratefulness. They ate, played and sang Christmas Carols the entire day. They were so happy! After dinner, it was time to receive the gifts sent by the foster parents. This was, obviously, the highlight of the evening and the most awaited moment. After all the excitement and emotions, putting these children to bed was not an easy task. But they all went to sleep with a big smile on their faces, and the heart full of hopes and dreams. We thank all our sponsors, volunteers and especially all our foster parents! Whit your help and continuous support, we are making a real difference in the lives of these children!
