Flower Child

Answering the question, “What is your major?” is definitely a mouthful. Elementary education with a concentration in special education and a second major in anthropology.

I usually get the response wow that’s a lot! But it doesn’t seem like much when I get rewarded for the hard work I put in every single day! Three days a week I get the pleasure of spending time with the sweetest little girl I’ve ever met.

She loves to listen to music, watch TV, cuddle, play outside. My little friend has cerebral palsy, but I bet you couldn’t even tell! She is so beautiful and overall such an amazing girl. She reminds me of a flower, delicate but thriving in beauty.  You watch them grow and you are absolutely stunned with the progress they made each time you see them.

Then  it blossoms into a beautiful flower.

Of Course Adelaide seems to amaze me every time I’m at her house. Whether it be a movement in her arms, or a facial reaction, the little things are so big for her.

No, teaching doesn’t pay much, but there isn’t a price on the amazing feeling I get every time I walk into Adelaide’s house and know how much it means to her. If you want to learn more about the PCA program and find a way to become a PCA please contact me via email at

  1. This is so beautiful. You seem like a very nice person just by reading this. I would love to work with children with special needs but I really don’t think I would have the heart to do so. Kudos
