It's a great day in Orlando Florida. The sun is shining. The temperatures are in the 70s. All of the families and volunteers are well-rested after a good night's sleep.
We met for breakfast this morning and then had a counseling session, followed by lunch at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. The children had a wonderful time in their morning session and have already seemed to form some incredible friendships with the other children as well as the volunteers and staff. There always seems to be a lot of noise coming from the children's sessions as they laugh and joke and play together. All the while they are learning some major lessons in anger management, how to handle fears, hurts and frustrations, and communication skills. It is difficult to describe the bonds that these children feel with one another as they share these unique and difficult circumstances.
