The Obsidian Odyssey, part I.

FAD201326So far, I’ve really enjoyed talking to other people about where they’re from, what their pasts are, and what they enjoy doing. The patients and families I’ve met all have very interesting stories to share.

This morning, we met with Senator Ayotte; she was very friendly and open to what we had to share and overall, I think the meeting went well. Unfortunately, we were not able to meet personally with Congresswoman Shea Porter because the House of Representatives was in session discussing and voting on the Farm Bill. Instead, we met with members of her staff.

Just like our meeting with Ayotte, the atmosphere was very inviting. They told us stories about how they were connected to Boston Children’s Hospital and I was very happy to hear that they were also in support of helping the programs at the hospital.

We were also able to go to the House of Representatives gallery and watch them debate and vote on different amendments and bills. We actually saw Congresswomen Shea Porter and Kuster on the floor during the vote.
