Words of encouragement from a previous FAD family

Congratulations to all of you participating in the Children’s Hospital Association’s Family Advocacy Day! My family had the honor to represent Boston Children’s Hospital and our great state of Maine last year.  I promise that you will have an incredible experience!  I could talk forever about this and you will soon see why.

We had a great experience speaking to our Maine representatives.  They graciously took the time to listen to our story and engage in valuable conversation.  We felt our voices were heard and believe we made a difference.

Our family will also never forget the other families we connected with.  We shared each others life challenges and found comfort knowing there were parents just like us.

Boston Children’s treated us like royalty and provided a phenomenal event like only Boston Children’s could.  It is no surprise given the top quality care my child needed and was/is repeatedly given time after time.

Again, congratulations to ALL of you!  I can’t wait to hear about the many surprises you will encounter.  Don’t forget your camera and sneakers!!  Trust me…you will want them 🙂
