Dance ~ A Most Beautiful Form of Art
Posted by:Sally--Sunday, December 12, 2010

Dance is a beautiful form of art. Most dances require strength, agility and coordination. It takes sacrifice and perseverence and long hours of practice before one becomes a terrific dancer. Our PSST Professionals are dancing stars. Take a look at Kathie T. for a moment, or Lloyd or Valerie Ketter. They make their jobs look easy. That is an art...just as a ballerina will stand tirelessly on her toes with a graceful smile upon her face; our PSST Professionals make their jobs look easy. That is an art.

Rocco and I have called upon these people at various times of the day and night and they have always been there for us. There were times when I was very distraught and they would help me through it and help me understand the situation and somewhere along the way (with impeccable timing) they would interject just the right amount of humor.

I have yet to hear them complain. They work tirelessly with a smile upon their face. If I were their only client I would not think this was so astounding but I am not. Case after case they accept the challenge every day.

I know there is a lot of behind the scenes work that never gets talked about, it just gets done. Reports and procedures.

How about Cisco and all of his placements? I have been so occupied with the difficulty of dealing with the fact that he walked out of three places.

Maybe it's time to look closer at the picture. It takes a lot of dance steps to keep finding beds at facilities. Cisco is not that unusual of a case. It takes several placements for many of our children. And Lloyd and Kathie and Val take it in stride. (Like the electric slide!)

I fully agree. I am so thankful for their support and efforts to help me get the help I know my son needs.

Thanks for the kind words. You, Rocco, and all the PSST parents keep us excited and optimistic about our work. You make it so much easier because you don't just sit there, you get up and dance too. Sometimes we lead, sometimes you lead and we step on a few toes along the way. :-)
