From a current mom, about her daughter: “I just want you to know how grateful I remain that we are part of your amazing school. F. just loves Manuela and being with everyone there. When I pick her up she’s happy and excited to be alive and it’s obvious she feels so comfortable and at home. It means the world to me. It’s so hard to let her go for so many hours every day, to not be with her all day myself…. but I feel better knowing she’s around such love and patience and gentleness. Thank you again for all you’ve done for us.” A. R.
