The paparazzi was all over our home yesterday! It was out of control. Ok…not really.
Isabel is so funny. About a week ago we found out that the local newspaper wanted to do a story about Isabel and her organization, Shoesforkids. Isabel prepared all week, picked out her outfit, and practiced what she wanted to say. She kept saying to me, “When is the paparazzi coming?”
They came yesterday… a photographer (with 2 Nikon D3’s) and a reporter (with a pen and pad). My little girl told her story while her mother and father (that is us) beamed with pride. 900 shoes have been sent overseas this year to kids in need. We have 700 shoes ready for shipment. Many of those shoes will go to Haiti in the next couple of weeks with a team from ForwardEdge. Some will help a local ministry for the homeless, and some will go to India with me on a Compassion trip in less than two weeks.
The reporter asked Isabel, “Why do you do this?”
Isabel answered, “Cause it makes me happy.”
She concluded her interview yesterday by saying, “I just want to make kids smile.”

Thanks friends for helping and contributing and making Happy Feet! We are so blessed and overwhelmed at all the generosity. My little girl (all 5’2″ of her 80 pound frame), has seen God work in a mighty mighty way, and her heart is filled. Thank you!
