On two separate occasions this month, one of the boys in Place of Hope’s care asked if he could cook dinner for the cottage on his own. Each time he simply walked up and asked if he could try an idea based on the ingredients that were already available.

Not only did he manage to cook a full meal for nine people, twice, he also managed to get a few of the other kids involved in his cooking adventure!

The food was so good there were no leftovers! It was an exciting couple of dinners and we were so proud to see him not only want to do something nice for his cottage “family,” but also to see it through from beginning to end with a great result!

He worked hard and discovered a talent he did not know he had. We could not be more proud and excited for him!
