How did I get here? I’ve been inspired by other child lifers’ Instagram posts sharing their journeys to becoming child life specialists. Since that is what Give Play Love has always been about, I wanted to share my own. Everyone’s path looks so different! Some are short, and some (like mine) are a 7 year process. 7 years since I first found out about child life and decided that was my place in the world. There has been so many ups and downs, mistakes made and lessons learned. Embrace wherever you are at in your process!
