Child Life Specialists

This morning when I woke up, my mom handed me the newspaper. There was a huge article in the Life section of the News Journal about Child Life Specialists!! The article focused on the staff at A.I. duPont Children's Hospital, which is located in Wilmington, and which is the hospital that Kelsey and I grew up going to if we needed a specialist, or if we had to run to the ER for a sports injury. (Think knee blow-out). A.I is also where Liam primarily treated, until he relapsed and the Kanes decided to take him to CHOP.

Here is the article: Helping Kids Cope With Serious Medical Problems

I know the woman who they interviewed - who is the head of the Child Life Department. She went to my church and she also had kids at my high school.

The article is really interesting...and if you'd like a better explanation of what I'm getting a degree for, then read it!
