Testimonial

"When I first met Kim, I was so relieved to find someone in my community who understood.   Kim gave me so much hope, even though Kenzie had just recently lost most of his vision and hearing.  When so many people just saw a boy in a wheelchair and all the things he could no longer do, Kim recognized the wholeness of Kenzie and what he could do. Through his IEP's she was there to help me find the words to clearly explain what I saw as Kenize's needs.  I can't thank Kim enough for the love and support and education she gave me as mommy to Kenzie."
