It never ceases to amaze me how children with special needs, who are so heavily burdened by their disabilies, are filled with so much joy. You would think that in the eyes of sweet, little Eli here that life is extremely hard. Now please understand that I have no doubts that there are daily struggles that these children and their families face to maintain normal lives; but do those struggles make Eli's smile any smaller, silent his vivacious laugh, or steal the child-like gleam in his eyes? Not a chance.
At the end of the day, kids like Eli are just kids. Here at Kids Center it is our job to nuture and discover their abilities so that they can go about living life feeling like they are nothing but extrodinary.
After joining the Marketing and Development team here at Kids Center last October, I have felt so blessed to be able to witness the smiles and the laughs as our kiddos achieve their goals during therapy. To think of Kids Center not being here, breaks my heart. THAT'S WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
