“Just as we were locking the doors a mother came in with her 2 children, all dressed up for the pictures. She stopped before she left to thanks us (we were busy tearing down) for taking the time, for caring, for making a difference, and as she walked away she said this was the only picture she had of or with her children. This wasn’t the first time we’d heard that, or seen tears, but it is the one that got to us all, and we cried and hugged each other as we watched her walk away.” -Connie Polk, Louisville, KY
