This evening, a Dragonfly Mom posted a note to us on our private Facebook page (for our Dragonfly families). (The family recently moved out of state to be closer to their parents.) In addition to managing the challenges of cancer, moving presented a whole new set of stresses. Yet, Dragonfly was able to make a difference, even there…
“Dragonflies are everywhere! We went to meet R’s new school teacher today. (R) has been having a little bit of a hard time transitioning from moving. We walk into the classroom and the teacher says “R, this is your seat”. She’s at the dragonfly table. Immediately she perks up and gets excited that everything will be ok. That’s what seeing dragonfly did for her. Comfort and joy. Thanks for that!! Everything you all have spent countless hours doing, all the hard work, keep doing it! We are not the only ones who feel this way when we see a dragonfly.”

Thank you to every single person and organization who has had a hand in making Dragonfly so meaningful. You did this.
