Great set of pics and story from Diane E about Glenda W’s trip to Arion Farms. Way to go Glenda! Diane writes:
Last Friday we went to Arion farms, Glenda had expressed she wanted to go on a horse…This was her first time for her! She was so excited for weeks leading up to it! Was amazing to experience it with her!! Her caregivers came out to watch too. The reason this is so amazing is because when I first started supporting Glenda years ago, all she wanted to do was go for tea… the fact that she expressed herself that she wanted to go on a horse.. shocked me and her home share providers.. Glenda has grown so much over the years … These moments remind me of why I love my job so much!!
