Amazing Things People Should Know About Tabitha: (Written by Aunt Janie) ****She is a loving, responsible young lady who gives of herself every chance she gets. She works and volunteers at her church teaching the children at Sunday School, teaching her own AWANA's class, working in the nursery, and anywhere else they need her. ****Tabi has a 15 year old brother named Zachary and an almost 11 year old sister named Cassidy she also lives with her cousin Benjamin who is 4 years old and is special needs and has helped care for him since he was 5 months old. (Cassidy will turn 11 on Dec. 7th and she's already stated that she knows she may be spending it at the hospital with Tabitha.) They both love her very much and have been helping Tabitha's mom pray and support her. ****Since she was a young girl she has wanted to go to Africa and work as a missionary in an orphanage. She recently expressed interest in traveling to Honduras to work in an orphanage. ****She graduated from her home school curriculum early and plans to go to college to study some sort of helping profession that might allow her in other countries to help with missions. ****Tabi loves her puppy Chloe who is nearby  waiting to see her "mommy"!****She is an invaluable help with her siblings and cousins. ****She loves anything from the Renaissance period, especially dragons and swords. She dreams of attending a Renaissance Festival in full costume including a hooded cape and authentic dress. She has been looking for the perfect dress & cape for a while now to go with the sword she already owns! ***** Tabitha loves music and was planning to go to to Toby Mac concert Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) but her mom told her no because she was still running a fever. Her iPod is waiting for her as soon as she's ready to listen to music again. *****More Amazing Things added by Samantha Moon via Guestbook on Dec 4, 2012 @12:51 PMBabe!!! :) you're gorgeous.
