Bella, 10 years old

Name: Bella, 10 years old
Submitted by: Her mom
Location:  Crozet, VA
What's going on? Her grandmother, with whom she was very close, passed away after a three year battle with cancer this past March.  Bella is having a hard time with the loss, but talks about and journals about it quite regularly.  She missed her deeply, and although she understands that Grammy is with God now, the injustice of her being taken from us weighs heavily on her heart.
What do you love most about this girl? She has a huge heart. She has a special place in her heart for those without a home.  Every year, we go to the store and buy supplies, such as toothpaste, deodorant, socks, etc., so that she can make Blessing Bags.  The bags then live in my car and her father's car and we give them out (sometimes she is with us and sometimes she is not) to those asking for help on the side of the road.  For her 10th birthday, instead of gifts, she asked everyone to bring donations that she could take to a Christian shelter in downtown Charlottesville.
