Magic of Child Life

When Kids Say They Can't, We Tell Them They Can!



Child Life will always be more than what we believe!

About the Author:

My name is Jacqueline and I have my Masters degree in Child Life. I discovered the field back in 2011 and have been passionate ever since! I currently reside in California and working toward an occupation that allows me to serve and work with children in the hospital setting. I enjoy anything Disney, as well as reading, singing, drawing, and spending time with friends and family.
