Here is a post from the hospital website. If you click the first video, you will hear the story of a neighbor of ours. We pick Freddy up for school every morning. He has a shy smile, and his entire family is very friendly. It is a pleasure to see their smiling faces every morning. If you wonder if I feel a little funny or if I feel emotionally conflicted picking him up in my 4 wheel drive car every morning . . . the answer is yes, but I have gotten used to it. I see the poverty every day, but the truth is that I am not always aware of it. If I really processed what I saw every day it would be overwhelming. The first picture from the article has one of our favorite students at the school in the middle background.
