SIBSPlace is special to me because it feels like going to grandma's house.
Hello, my name is Faryal and I am eight years old. SIBSPlace is special to me because it feels like going to grandma's house. I feel loved and appreciated every time I walk through their doors with warm and smiling hellos from all. Once I get my homework done the evening is mine to enjoy.
I like being at SIBSPlace because I get to meet friends who are understanding and caring. After dinner, we sit around the table and each take a turn telling out thumbs up thumbs down for the week. I like this a lot because when my sister goes to the hospital, I get a lot of help and support from my friends because they are going through a tough time as well and I also give support and advice to them.
Each day we do something different that makes our evening even more special, my favorite craft so far was making a rain stick.
I especially enjoy the field trips. We visited the circus, Disney on Ice, we ice skated with the group, I even saw my very first Broadway show Mary Poppins. It was awesome!
I am really, really happy to be part of SIBSPlace so thanks to the wonderful volunteers and to everyone who helped make SIBSPlace exist. It truly does make a happy difference in my life.
