Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.’
― C.S. Lewis

It sounds pretty amazing,
and it is…
But it’s so much more than that.
Truly, SEEDs is a life-changing program.
I have watched shyness turn into confidence.
I have seen meltdowns fade as coping skills develop.
I have seen distraction evolve into focus..
but, perhaps best of all –
I have seen these wonderful people find friends.
