Dacia; Flower attendant

Watching Amanda's face as she sat down to receive her "beauty treatment". Its at that moment, that as a parent, you realize that your baby girl is growing up and your job as a parent may become difficult. But you welcome the challenge, as the love for your child pushes you forward, and you refuse to let your baby grow up.
Rosemarie and John; Parent

This is me and Sisters first time here and we love it. I believe this program is very encouraging for the families who have special kids.

I am the proud uncle (guardian) of Zachary Painter. Zachary is an eleventh grader at Sierra Vista high school. Zachary unfortunately lost his father in 1998 and was raised by his grandmother until 2011 at which time we were able to begin our care for him. This is hands down the most amazing thing he has ever experienced in his young life. I am amazed and blessed to experience along side of him, a night he will never forget. God Bless you all!
