Me and my husband were young, desperate, and totally clueless when we found out we were pregnant. Our biological families live nearly 3 hours away from Cleveland, and we didn't have very much in person help with our infant. The Open Arms crew welcomed us like family. They all gave us advice, extra help when we needed it, and even an ear for listening. Rosie's room was the first daycare experience Aayden ever had. He instantly fell in love with her and refused to eat breakfast with anyone else up until last year. She helped to mold so many young children, mine included, to be kind and caring just through her actions alone. She will be dearly missed! We're praying for all of her family and dear friends. Please let us know if you need anything.

Ms. Rosie will always hold a special place in our hearts! She has taken care of Grayson since he was born. The love she had for "her babies" is irreplaceable. I'm glad she is now pain free and reunited with the love of her life. The family is in our prayers.
