"A smile is worth a thousand words."

Julie A. Walker

Most, if not all, of the children who come to CSC find it challenging to convey their feelings. While very few can use words, most of them are not able to. Sadness or fear are usually expressed in silence, tears, tantrums, or stomach aches. Joy or happiness is expressed in hugs, drawings, flowers, or petals picked along the driveway, and mostly in SMILES.

A child's smile keeps us going. When days are long and overwhelming, the genuine smiles on our children's faces give us the strength to carry on.

A child's smile reminds us to count our blessings, especially during the days when we lack cheerfulness and forget all the good things.

A child's smile speaks gratitude to our hearts. Even when words are absent, we still hear their "thank you's."

A child's smile is contagious. Even when our hearts are heavy, we smile because they do.

A child's smile matters because not all children can or will smile at CSC. But when they do, we know our language of love speaks to their hearts.

A CSC child's ...
S – smile gives warmth
M - making our day bright,
I - inspiring us to not give up,
L – leaving a mark in our hearts, and
E – encouraging us to look forward to brighter days ahead.

Dear child,
Thank you for your smile. You don't know how many hearts you have touched when you smile.
May God continue to put a smile on your face and make us instruments for such. May your smile
reflect God's sweet embrace and loving touch in your life today and always.
