Every Family Has a Story…

And for the next 6 weeks, we’re going to share a few. The Children’s Healing Center is back with #FamilyFridays, a weekly Facebook feature that profiles our kids and families. We’re blending words, photos and video to distill the magic that is created each and every week within our walls. We grew in the past year and we are excited to introduce you to some of our new families.
