“Every moment you provide us enriches the connection, bond, and spirit of our family. Thank you for everything you do to help make our children a little happier, and our lives more manageable!”
“We don’t worry”
“My wife and I would wait until the last minute to change diapers because we were afraid we would run out. Now, thanks to Friends we don’t worry about a shortage and our child is healthier.”
“A life saver”
“I had surgery and couldn’t lift either of my children for two weeks. The respite funds allowed me to pay for a sitter during that time. I don’t know what I would have done without it!”
