Have you ever adopted a child to give presents to?
Asked at Java Break, 17 E. Seventh St. on December 23, 2004
“I was this close, but I’m too poor to buy presents for my own family.”
“Yes, I did. They had ornaments on the tree at church. I picked a 3-year-old boy. He’s the same age as my son, so I knew just what to get him.”
“Yes. I adopted a family from school. I got the kids remote-control cars and a bike.”
“I adopted one with a company that I was working for as part of a Christmas program.”
