The Familiar and the New

by Cassidy Toner

During the seven days our team has been at the hospital, some things have become very familiar — the sight of Ionut running out of the playroom, exclamations of “acolo” from Ema and Delia, Shrek 2, meows from Alina, and David dumping  out  every container of toys he can find.

However, each day brings something new. Ionut and Ema sharing a bean bag and looking at books. Paul’s determination to move around the room and engage with those around him. Coca shushing the kids while Alina took center stage to sing and dance for her audience. Maria falling asleep in my arms and David putting together the floor puzzle twice. This has been such an amazing experience.  Just look at their little faces!!
