Being changed by a change

Everybody has needs.
Everybody shared needs.
If you have the heart,
You help with those so much different.

Isolated from society;
The "freaks" "outsiders".
The just have special needs!

It takes a rare breed.
To see them.
To help them.

It takes a special breed to be:
An Animal-Assisted Therapist

You only do it for them.
Not yourself;
But them.

Those smiles.
Those hugs.
Those "Thank you for being my only fried".
Their parents "You are a gift".

Your tears.
Your happiness.
It was a long road there.
But that change came from a change.
Came from hope & love.

Yes, I am a rare breed.
One of many.
A future Animal-Assisted Therapist.
