Adam's Appeal Show
Today we all went to Adam’s Appeal Community Show. What an amazing town we live in. What amazing friends, neighbours, fellow parents, and others besides we have fighting for us.
The concert was great, the choir were fantastic (seriously they were REALLY GOOD). I’m sure when all the totting up has finished a massive amount will have been raised for the appeal.
Even more than all that though, it’s hard to believe so many people got up and sung for our little boy. A good number of them would never have envisaged doing anything like singing in a choir. Then to see all the people that had come along to support the show, well it’s all very humbling really. It's amazing how one little boy, our little boy, has brought so many people together, and generated so much positive energy throughout the whole of the local community.
We’ve been doing this for a few months now and you might think we should be used it. We’re so not. I’ve come to the conclusion that sometimes it’s better not to think too hard about it. So today I just wanted to go along and enjoy the show. Thanks to all the dancers, singers, musicians, and the 58 ladies and 2 men in the choir I did precisely that.
P.S. When Adam's year one school friends came on and did their bit Adam was singing along with them from his seat. It was definitely the highlight of the show as far as he was concerned.
