A Safe Place for Toddler during Surgery in Sioux Falls

A client of Bright Start was having major surgery and does not have family or close friends in town.  My client has a one year old daughter and was not to lift her daughter for six weeks.  Safe Families was a great option for my client.  She met the family on a couple occasions before her surgery and her daughter was introduced to the family.  The day of her surgery, the family kept her daughter and even invited my client to stay with them while she recovered for a few days.  I do not know what other option my client would have had that we all felt comfortable with.  Safe Families is a great program and option for our community.
