We HEART Child Life Specialists

Today's paper had a great article about Child Life Specialists and how much they help not just the patient but also the siblings. All three girls were photographed along with Betsy and the portacath doll. I know all three girls benefited from being able to play in the hospital, whether it was singing, painting, coloring, movies galore, computer games, Kyle's magic bubbles, bead making... gosh I can go on an on. I know as a parent I benefited also I was so happy that someone was there to have fun with the kids while I was able to "recharged my batteries".
