Then/Now Blog Post - 2017

Well, well, well it's that time again! Actually, last year ON THIS DAY, I posted the annual then/now blog! June 6th must be a good day for me! May 2017 marked 6 years since we got our first kids at New Day - time flies! I love to look at them and see the progress they have made from their first day to now. Looking at these pictures, you can definitely see the physical changes, but those of us who live here (and those of you who have visited) know firsthand that the emotional and spiritual changes are even more significant! So here it is - all 31 kids - in the order they came to New Day...THEN...and NOW!
