I love getting a glimpse at who the awesome kids I work with grow up to be! And it's nice to hear that the work we did together played a part in getting them where they are today.
I recently got in touch with 2 families that I hadn't seen in many years.
One kid I hadn't seen in 13 years. At my niece's college graduation, his name was called a few people before her. I was so excited to hear that name again and see him graduating college! I got in touch with the family and it was awesome to hear about what he is up to now as an adult.
"Oh, yes I remember you! You're part of the reason he walked across that stage!" - his mom
From another family I hadn't seen in about 9 years, I got an e-mail out of the blue because she was thrilled to share that her daughter had graduated college and got engaged.
"You were a special part of her life then and she still has fond memories of you. Thank you for being a part of her success story!" -her mom
