An aMAYZing thing happened last weekend...yes, the pun was intended!!! Before I go any further, I'm going to attach the two articles that were in the paper for you to review: (Make sure to click on the photos in the articles.)
Now, assuming you read the articles you already know what that aMAYZing thing was!! Our clinic is finally open! It has taken Sean and Hailey's therapists over a year of extremely hard work and dedication to get to this point, but it has paid off!! I am so proud of them!
I often go and volunteer on Wednesday's when my mother comes down to watch my kiddos. It is such a wonderful experience. I really wish I could work there full-time because I feel Hailey's spirit so strongly there. It is such an awesome place to be!!!
Since I'm only able to be there once a week, I haven't really seen any children be treated until just recently. A couple of weeks ago I sat in the office listening to the therapists work with these special kids and my eyes welled in tears over the sheer joy it brought to my heart. I remembered so vividly all the times I heard them say the exact same things to my sweet Hailey. It was such a beautiful thing. After listening for a little while, I couldn't help myself so I peeked around the corner and watched for a few minutes. It may sound odd, but it was so exciting to see the pride on the children's faces when they were successful at a task and heard, "Good Job! You did it!" I was right back there with Hailey all over again.
The thought of us being able to help other children and give them the same sense of pride and increased quality of life Hailey has is one of the most exciting things I've ever experienced in my entire lifetime! The therapists that worked with her, and now helped create aMAYZing Kids, are among the very best...not just at what they do, but at who they are. These woman love their job, along with the children they work with, and it shows every time they are with a child. I will be forever grateful and indebted to them for what they did for Hailey and even more so, for how much the loved and still love her.
I want to extend a special and heartfelt thank you to all those who have supported us in this venture. aMAYZing Kids would not be possible without all the volunteers and donations we have received. It is so overwhelming to me how much my daughter was and is loved!
I could have NEVER imagined, 2 years ago, that what I thought was a tragedy in the sudden death of my baby girl, would in fact become a huge triumph and blessing to so many. I know she is proud!
