“We are so thankful for Bright Horizons there at Memorial. So glad we came and toured the facility over a year ago, and when we look back and see how far Luke has come, it blesses our hearts. From his speech, to his independence and yearning to learn, we are so grateful. Each and every teacher, caregiver and administrator has had an impact not only on Luke, but impacted in the most positive way, us as a family as well. Thank you. Mark and Susan Harrell”
