Hanging Out

By: Laura-Kate Denny, A NDFH Summer Intern

So often, the children astound us with their incredible strength. We are constantly awe-struck by their strength in the face of adversity, strength in healing after medical procedures, and strength in opening their hearts to love. In addition to all of these inspiring instances of strength, Peter definitely displays another type:

While playing in the yard, Peter asked his nanny to lift him up to the monkey bars. She happily obliged (who could say "no" to that face??), and Peter amazed us all by being able to hold himself up without support! Of course, loving arms were always ready to catch him, just in case.

Peter's laughter and smile are a source of joy at New Day - we are so thankful to be able to care for such a strong little man!
