Awwwhhhhh!!!!! Thanks for sharing!!! So sweet! I've recently been temporarily helping out on a case that I have not worked in over a year. The child was very glad to see me again, and has asked me several times to hug her. Something very special about a disabled child asking for a hug!

That was so sweet and too cute! I think I would have cried a river of tears right then and there(LOL). I absolutely LOVE home care!
