hope in the halls
waiting for her hand
This is the Carl J and Ruth Shapiro surgical center at Children's Hospital in Boston. I visited it yesterday for the first time to see some of my pictures that were installed here a few years ago along with many others. During these years I have had the great reward of hearing from some of my relatives that my pictures gave them comfort as they waited to hear word about their child in surgery.
My visit gave me great comfort as I shared in a small way the anxiety and hope of dozens of families waiting in rooms off the halls shown here; and it gave me inspiration as I saw the care, concern and constant effort that staff of the center showed to bring every bit of information to loved ones as fast as they could. With thanks for letting me visit and thanks for the work done here for all of us.
