A letter of thanks from a parent:
Dear Sarah's Smile Staff,
Betty* had her best camp experience to date! From the bottom of our hearts we appreciate everyone's kindness, positive attitudes, patience, energetic nature, and the list goes on. Betty had a great summer. She has been talking more, eating more and showing an interest in coloring (the table mostly, but hey, that's a start!). The progress shs made with eating new foods is amazing. We can't thank you enough.
All the best,
The T.* Family
