"She is SO thrilled to have your daughter!"
from the director of the Learn-to-Skate program at a new-to-us arena this morning, as she told me which instructor Li'l Bit would have. You see, I called and spoke to two women there before I enrolled my girls. I wanted to be sure they are comfortable working with children with special needs. They are. They didn't hesitate.
I still blink back tears hours later to recall the director's face, her reassuring and genuine smile as she was talking to me this morning.
