On Wednesday, February 24, LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Abraham (Trinity - Hicksville, New York) and his handlers visited virtually with St. James Lutheran Preschool. The children had so many great questions and read a book together after they colored Abraham's picture.
Our Preschool LOVED meeting Abraham and his handlers, Miss Donna, Miss Christine, and Mr. Mike! We all fell in love with Abraham, his demeanor, and his ability to "work and to play" - so beautiful in every way! The "humans' were excellent in describing to our preschoolers and teachers all about Abraham's ministry, his ways of comforting others, his body movements when comforting those who might be in a wheelchair or a hospital bed, his eating habits, what toys he likes to play with, and also about his siblings who we learned are in the family business as well! How proud Abraham's parents must be!
Abraham's presence helped the children, teachers, and staff members, and our parents understand more of what Abraham does and who he is!
Thank you SO MUCH for bringing this ministry into our world here at St. James Lutheran Preschool for our virtual RED T-shirt Field Trip! One day we hope to meet Abraham and his handlers in person!
