|Shami Makes the Rounds of Shelters, Hospitals and Classrooms|
Shami visited the Women and Children's Shelter October 23rd. Many of the children were getting ready for Halloween and loved showing Shami their costumes. Shami sat with a young girl and her brother while they were working on their homework. They read Shami a book all about reptiles, which she really enjoyed, especially the cool pictures!
Shami visited Hinsdale Hospital last Wednesday night. The nurses were so thrilled to see her and she received numerous requests to visit with patients throughout the hospital. The five year-old daughter of one of the patients was so thrilled to meet "Luther's friend". She spent a good deal of time with her new friend and is hoping for another visit! Shami also found time to visit with several of the hospital staff members.
Jolene Bazon accompanied Shami to visit with the autistic children again on Thursday, October 25th. The children spent time petting Shami and then had an opportunity to play ball with her. The children were thrilled that Shami brought the ball back to them repeatedly. Looks like they wore Shami out! Shami will continue to visit with the children, as they have responded in such a positive manner to her visits.
