my dad described kinkade as the most tender hearted little boy he has ever known. i would have to completely agree. he has always been so compassionate to other people and how he can help them. he blows us away with his compassion and empathy. the other night i let both the boy's watch a few minutes of idol gives back. after the segment on Africa and malaria i looked over and they both were in tears. kinkade then went upstairs to get his giving jar and started planning a mission trip to help the people in Africa. that night he slept with us he was so upset about their situation and just kept praying for them. he told me he would go there to help even if it was just for three people. he is beyond unselfish for his age always giving and sharing and thinking of others. we are so proud of who kinkade is and his heart for people and the world. i was trying to find pictures of just kinkade to post but all of my favorite pictures of him are with someone else. . . . he truly is the happiest when he is with people!
here is the poem that kinkade and i did together. i was amazed at how self reflective he was and i just adore how sweet and tender hearted this little boy is. yet he is also tough as nails. . . you may have noticed kinkade's teeth these last few posts. the story goes.. . he and his brother were playing dunk hoops and he did a reverse dunk and got his two front permanent adult teeth caught in the net. they both were completely fractured at the crown and all the ligaments were torn. it has been traumatic and painful for kinkade but he has been so tough and handled the situation with grace and tons of character. at times i think it has been harder on mom and dad then him. after a really long night the day it happened kinkade said to us when he got into bed - "is it okay to pray for yourself?"
