When I Grow Up...
Most of us have gathered a youngster close and asked, "What do you want to be?" And the little one responds with, "When I grow up..."
We listen intently as they rattle of a litany of amazing ideas that will be their future. And we silently pray that we will be able to provide the opportunities that will allow them to realize their dreams.
Most of us have never had to consider what it would be like to have a little one who does not have the capacity to express their dreams, and we may have difficulty to comprehend how a parent of that little one can cope.
The truth is, it is not coping; it is adjusting the depth of dreams. It is realizing that it is not the grandness of the dreams but believing that dreams still exist and are just as meaningful.
The parents and families that NCS is fortunate to work with, are living reminders that dream makers do exist.They are diligent within their passion to provide and amazing life for their little ones.
They dream of a day without a seizure, a month without an infection, and a season without a hospitalization. They dream that they will make the right decisions, maintain financial viability , and always touch gently.
They dream and pray, "When you grow up"...
