I love it when a community can come together and make things happen. Case in point: one of my youngest cousin Stephanie’s quinceañera. Unfortunately, our family couldn’t get together the funds for the traditional 15th birthday celebration, but her church stepped in and threw her a little surprise.
Stephanie thought it would be just another Sunday at church, but after the service she was handed a new pink dress and told to slip into her very first pair of heels. All the girls of her Youth Group wore pale blue and white and walked her down the aisle, where the pastor blessed Stephanie and her new year of life in front of the entire congregation. Someone from the church even stepped forward to bake a really beautiful cake and cupcakes.
