“Rae, thank you for all the love you give Serena!”



“Julissa, thank you so much for all the love and care you provide for Serena. One of my favorite parts of the day is to pick up Serena and hear all of the funny stories from the day. They say it takes a village to raise a child and I thank you for being a part of it!”



“Morgan, your special connection with Serena is so sweet! We really appreciate all the extra love you give. (Including helping her be a lefty! ??)”



“Morgan, thank you so much for all your love and care for Serena. You two have a cute special bond and it brings me so much comfort to know that she is in great hands. I also love to hear your stories of her from the day, including the embarrassing bossy ones.”
