Summer Smiles All Around

Smiling is something that can be done in relatively no time, but leaves a lasting impression. A smile can completely turn someone’s day around and that is what the wonderful team at Infant Crisis Services is all about. I recently joined the team here as the summer Public Relations and Development Intern.

This has been the best thing I have done all summer! I applied for this position for two reasons: The first reason being that I need to do an internship for school requirements at Oklahoma State University. More importantly, I applied because I once was a baby living in a critical situation and could have benefitted from a place like Infant Crisis Services. Unfortunately, my mom and I lived in California and didn’t have that saving grace Infant Crisis Services offers. I hoped that my working here would allow me to help those who aren’t able to help themselves.

This job is a million times more rewarding than I thought I would be which brings a smile to my face even as I am writing this. To see the wave of relief wash over the parents of these babies is more gratifying than winning the lottery and is a feeling unlike any other. The people I get to work with clearly love their job and have a passion for helping others. Everyone is always smiling and completely awesome to be around. It has been a real privilege to get to be here for the summer and help babies smile as well.

Darn it, clearly we didn't know that we sohlud be sending Hillary for coffee all summer! (I don't actually have any dry cleaning.) Anyway, Jennifer and I are both so sad to send Hillary back to Columbus. She has been a huge help this summer, in so many ways, and we will miss her bright smile, enthusiasm and proactive approach to work. I can't imagine another college student who could produce so much great work with so little guidance! She's going far in life with that skill. We have invited her to keep in touch, to write the occasional guest blog and to come back an see us during breaks, so we hope you haven't heard the last of her. And we will follow her progress through college and beyond with great interest and a little bit of surrogate-motherly pride. You go girl! Thanks for everything!~Kristi
