    I have had the most wonderful opportunity to work with Sydnie for several years now. She has continued to grow and blossom right before my eyes. She has a sense of humor that keeps me rolling with laughter and a caring heart filled with love for every one around her.She continues to marvel me with her capacity and desire to learn and I know her path is going to be filled with continued opportunities to show us what she is fully capable of.As her school based occupational therapist I can attest to Sydnie’s abilities as a girl growing up to be one of the best individuals this sweet old world has ever had in their presence.

    What a blessing! I enjoyed reading Chrissy’s article and looking at all of the precious children in their costumes. I have known Chrissy since she was born and she is such a beautiful and talented young lady. I am so thankful that the Rivera’s love for each other has sustained and made your marriage and family even stronger. You are a wonderful family, and I love you. May the Lord bless and keep each of you as you love and care for your great kids.
