Gabriel's Angels
April 28, 2011

I am currently a Helping Hand Volunteer with Gabriel's Angels, and am working with a Bull-Mastiff Puppy named Charlie to become a Therapy Team. I love this organization and believe in their philosophy whole-heartedly! I grew up in a home where there was material wealth, but I was not safe or valued. Whenever I felt sad, scared, angry, or hurt, I would play with my dogs. They showed me unconditional love and joy. When we go to the Sojourner Center with "Petey", the Therapy Dog, I can relate to these precious children, who just want to feel safe, loved, and happy. Seeing "Petey" each week does this for these kids. You can see it in their eyes, and in their huge smiles when we walk through the door. The most rewarding moments are when one of the kids, who has been shy and afraid to interact with "Petey", finally trusts, and pets him. Each week, they trust a little more, and they come to love and trust "Petey", and are empathetic to him as well. The un-conditional love "Petey" brings to these kids will impact them and stay in their hearts always. ......I know,......it stayed in mine:)
