One of the most fascinating things to me when I work with children is being able to witness the beginnings of independence. Shining a light on those simple moments that sometimes we don’t realize. Independence is shown in an action (like the first time we pull ourselves up in our cribs) or thinking (“My favorite animal is the elephant, but I don’t like the circus because they keep the animals in cages”), and watching our children develop their own distinct personalities through it, is a celebration to me.
I recently worked with the S. family, who together are full of love, spontaneity and playfulness, and are just as remarkable as individuals. I am grateful for the opportunity to have gotten to know them and to be a part of it.
