My Dad Bouncing Harry and Singing "I'm Just Wild About Harry"

Today is my Dad's 86th Birthday! I sent him a box of pears (his favorite) and made a donation to the Sharing Foundation through our Global Giving Fund Raising page (as part of America's Giving Challenge)! On my Dad's 78th birthday in 1999, my husband and I received our official adoption notice and our first photo of Harry. Harry was the first grandson.
Harry's grandparents joined us on our trip to Cambodia to bring Harry home. My parents were incredibly helpful teaching us how to change a diaper, how give a bottle and bath. They also had a ball playing with Harry. Harry is named after my grandfather and I'll never forget my dad holding Harry in his arms in Cambodia, dancing around the hotel room and singing, "I'm Just Wild About Harry." I captured a snippet on my mavoca digital camera here.
My Dad got to see first hand the great work of the Sharing Foundation (in the early days). He had the same reaction I did: Harry is lucky to have the opportunity to come to America for a better life, but what about all those other children? That's why I'm sure he be pleased that I kicked in $10 to support the Sharing Foundation in honor of his birthday.
