LOVE - Updated!

Last year, about this time, this beautiful banner came home with Ivy from "Georgia Day" at Parkside. It took up residence high on the wall in our living room and is full of signatures and well-wishes from the children, their families, and the staff in our most precious community. It has served as a constant reminder of the love and support that surrounds Georgia (and all of us) and is a perfect expression of the Parkside spirit. We really wanted to preserve it, so now, the banner looks like this:

Georgia carefully cut out each message and drawing and put them in a scrapbook. We have read and re-read each one of them many times and will treasure them always. I have no doubt that the love sent to Georgia while she was out of school, and the hugs that enveloped her when she returned, have had a huge impact on her recovery. So thank you, thank you, dear Parkside friends, and congratulations on an amazing 2oth anniversary party this weekend!

Happy Valentine's Day, y'all!

UPDATED! This is the anniversary video for our loving community! Watch and be inspired by Joe and Claire's beautiful vision!
