Angels without wings...
If I could sing a song about the compassion, understanding, caring-helpful way that Naomi Society has helped me and my family - it would be sung from the skies above for all the world to hear. I can't thank you enough for being there for us. When I thought I would walk this path alone, you were there every step of the way.
