At first, I was apprehensive about being a part of Central Park Station. I wouldn't consider myself someone who is great with kids. But after just a few hours at Central Park Station, I have come to adore the children we help out and have become best friends with them! A few of them convinced their mom to let them come visit me while I'm at work. Playing games with the kids has become a highlight of my week and a great stress reliever! I love those kids.
