quotes

Hazel's Mom

“I always rely on Miss Debbie to be the voice of reason when I'm not quite sure how to proceed on something. She's matter of fact with the babies, which helps them learn to shrug off life's little tumbles and pick themselves back up. Thanks, Miss Debbie, for all that you do!”

quotes

Hazel's Mom

“Ms. Lisa is always doling out the love to the babies in the infant room. My daughter gets so excited to see her that she waves her arms around and babbles to her. I know that my daughter gets plenty of cuddles and hugs while I'm away from her. Thank you, Lisa, for all that you do!”

quotes

Hazel's mom

“Miss Adrienne has been such a welcome addition to the infant's room. She's quick to laugh and tell you how it is. She's not intimidated by my daughter's occasional bouts of "diva" behavior. Thank you, Miss Adrienne!”

Hazel's Mom
