We just had one of our School-Age girls move on from our program after being with us for quite a number of years. She lives with her grandparents and they wrote a very heart-warming letter to us. One portion of the letter really spoke to me and I wanted to share it with you:
“…it has been a wonderful atmosphere for Alicia to grow up in a facility with both male and female caregivers. She is comfortable with both men and women and often surprises people with her friendliness. We have had male friends in our house that are amazed at how Alicia relates to them while other children they have met seem to shy away. I know this is due in part to the professionalism and personal caring from the staff at Discovery…”
A pretty touching statement, especially coming from a grandmother!!
