I was recently given the gift of 1000 paper cranes from the foreign language students at Novi Meadows School (Hannah's school). They were given with a wish to make me well. It is a Japanese custom to give 1000 hand folded paper cranes to someone who is ill to wish a quick recovery. Our family feels very honored to receive this gift.
We have become friends with a Japanese family in our neighborhood the Nishigaki's. Etsuko has been working for many weeks to create 1000 paper cranes with the same wish of good health. She has made over 220 so far. Her circle of paper cranes hangs next to the cranes
from the Meadows students.
We are so appreciative of all of the support from the community!
