We're 15 days into 2021 - halfway through the first month of what we all hope is a year full of health and happiness. Despite the many uncertainties we continue to face, the turn of a new year is a wonderful opportunity to pause, reflect and envision a healthy and happy year ahead.
We say goodbye to 2020 with gratitude for and in awe of this community. Your dedication to your families, your health and your community inspires us everyday as we journey through these difficult times.

This (experiencing the joy of a rainbow baby) is not lost on me. I know not everyone will get their rainbow at the end of the storm.
