Happy New Year! What a crazy ride 2020 has been. I want to thank you all for continuing to inspire me to be a better mother, child life specialist, and human. At the beginning of the year, I was just getting some groundwork for child life collaboration within my community. Everything was halted with the pandemic. I quickly pivoted with the changes and was able to insert my services through telehealth and in-person sessions.
Thank you to community organizations that allowed me to connect with your families and provide caregiver workshops.
Thank you to the families that allowed me to work with your children in-person and through telehealth.
Thank you to the child life academic programs for the opportunity to connect with students.
Thank you to my amazing colleagues for continuing to push me in creative ways.
Thank you to my guest bloggers, authors, and program leaders for sharing your amazing resources.
Thank you to my friends for keeping me grounded and reminding me that I am a good mom.
Thank you to my family for always loving and supporting me.
Thank you, 2020 for allowing me to grow.
Cheers to a new year filled with hope, health, and happiness.
