"Happy Direct Support Professional Week! We want to give a shout out to all of the amazing people who help us keep Emma happy, healthy and safe. She can’t say it with words but we see how happy she is at Tiffany and seeing her develop relationships with her caregivers up there is heartwarming. It’s also comforting to see the genuine enjoyment that staff seem to get from being in her company. This holds true for Amego school staff and Administration too. We want to thank each of you for the roles that you play in Emma’s care and education. You’re the best! - Jennifer Newcomer"

"Hi Addi, Josh, and Exult (hope I got that right), Thanks for a great visit with our Josh today. Special thanks to you Addi for setting up the umbrella and cleaning the table for us before we arrived. We enjoyed our time out outdoors on the deck being serenaded by a Carolina Wren the whole time. We have some ideas for adding a little pink to Josh’s arm guards as he requested today. Hopefully, I can get it done for him this week. Have a great rest of the weekend.

"Jonathan at Stone Run, You touched our hearts last night. The beautiful way that you spoke to Tommo and his response to you was precious.

Thank you for listening to him and for all that you do to support his needs. We appreciate you!! - Russ and Karen Raposa"
