we tried everything we could think of to reach her. but dementia had taken its toll on her. sometimes we could get a smile out of her, but not often.
until she was given this baby doll.
never in my life have i seen such joy on one person's face as i did the day she adopted her baby.

i am always grateful for the people in life that teach me.
and working with older adults has taught me more than i could ever have thought possible.

How wonderful that you are spending time with older adults. I loved your photo story. We have so much to learn from people who have spent a long time in this life. Always another lesson. Maybe I need to adopt a baby doll, too. The thought of it already makes me happier.
