Very few kids made the impact of Xander Wade during his time with us. He was arguably the kindest, warmest and bravest kid I have had the pleasure of knowing. Xander had a prolonged illness and passed away earlier this year. Xander made me this card a few years ago. I put it on my door. It reminds me of him and how important every single baby we hug, love and educate in our classrooms. Today is his birthday. Happy Birthday buddy! Parents, if you ever wonder, we love your babies too.
