What do you love most about Brighton Center?  Seeing kids with disabilities have an opportunity to share their God given gifts with us!  Seeing that first step, hearing that first word, seeing that moment when parents and the child realize they can do anything!  It’s the most precious thing in life and we get to be a part of it.  It’s humbling and rewarding all wrapped up in a single moment.

What keeps you motivated?  The children we work with.  Nothing comes easy for the children we work with.  Seeing them work so hard to strive to do what comes easily for most children is inspiring.  Our kids work diligently and every day to do things that some thought they never would.  They never give up.  So if they don’t give up, how could I?  It definitely keeps me motivated to work just as hard to make sure they have the support to show the world ALL that they can do!
