IT’S MY BIRTHDAY EVE AND I LOVE EVERYTHING
Thank you to Dillon for making my 8-year old birthday wish come true. Now I can finally say I’ve been to the Surratt House!

“There’s a feeling of home that I think we all experience, and we all know what it is, but we can’t necessarily define it.”Christopher Smith, Tiny: A Story About Living Small (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)
“‘I’ve been writing music most of my life. Songs have always been the place where I’ve sorted out the events of day. If you trace these songs back far enough they tell a story of where I’ve been and what I’ve seen along the way. That said, most people don’t have the time to sort through the hundreds of songs that have collected in the wake of my 20 plus years behind a piano, and that’s why I love “Cecilia and the Satellite”. As a song it encapsulate so much living against the back drop of a new life. Cecilia was written with the knowledge that my wife and I would soon meet our first child. With the hope of avoiding territory this type of song often treads, I tried to create a road map of the life I had lived leading up to that moment. One my daughter might look back on some day. A strange life of constant motion, spent traveling in the pursuit of music. A life I’ve nearly lost on more than one occasion and one which I am thankful for, now more than ever. Deep down this song is about more than me and where I’ve been, it’s about more than my daughter and what I want for her. It’s about being proud of where you come from and wanting the most for the people you share your world with.”
Hi! I’m a service coordinator for Maryland’s early intervention program. So I have a caseload of kiddos ages 0-3 I manage. I work with a NICU in Baltimore City, so most of my kids were born premature. But I can also get kids (like the one in the picture) that weren’t born early, but have other disabilities that require services.
I talk to or meet with the families at least once a month to monitor development, make sure services (PT, OT, speech, etc) are going smoothly, and get them any services they need. I’m also a resource for the family if they need help with anything else. I can get them information for Section 8, WIC, SSI, food stamps…anything like that.
I visit them at home, go to doctors appointments, and meet families while they are still in the NICU…so I’m kinda all over the place on any given day :)
That turned into a novel, sorry!
I love my job. I spent my afternoon cuddling this little guy and helping his family make memories with him that will last long after he is gone. He is one of my “complex kiddos” but melts my heart every time I see him. I’m so grateful I get to be an important part of the lives of the families I work with. They are definitely an important part of mine.
Hive number two is full of some hard working ladies!
Yes! Each is definitely unique. I have 2 nephews and a niece. My nephews are 18 and 19 and my niece is 15. My nephews live in Florida and one of them I’ve never met. The other I haven’t seen in a few years. My niece is my half sisters daughter and was adopted by them when she was 6. I see her a few times a year!
