Your impact Last summer, I shared with you my hopes that as a community we would expand our reach to provide high-quality pediatric care to more of Georgia's children. I am proud to say we have been working tirelessly toward this goal. We have added more neighborhood locations, started construction of our new Center for Advanced Pediatrics and announced plans for a replacement hospital. This exciting and unprecedented growth is possible because of generous donors like you. In this issue of Small Wonders, we are pleased to share accomplishments from 2016, celebrate fundraising efforts and detail how your dollars made an impact. Spotlighted in this edition is Lia Carter, a young girl with a congenital heart defect. Lia's condition hasn't slowed her down, thanks in part to her energetic spirit and the care she receives from the Children's Sibley Heart Center. Our Center for Advanced Pediatrics will help kids like Lia who rely on multiple pediatric specialists for their complex care needs. In a special feature, the Clark family shares how they are honoring their daughter Emily's legacy through two endowments. Emily's dream of being a pediatric nurse at Children's lives on through this generous gift. You will also learn about our cherished volunteer, Barbara Dillingham, who has served at Children's for three decades. Volunteers are critical to helping us provide kids the care they deserve, and Barbara's experience highlights the many different ways the community contributes to our organization. At Children's, our top priority is caring for Georgia's children when and where they need us most. Thank you again for contributing to our success in 2016 and for helping us grow in 2017 and beyond. We are stronger because of you. Sincerely, W. Paul Bowers Chairman, Board of Trustees Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation Board of Trustees W.
