It takes a big heart to dedicate your career to working with children, especially children with disabilities. Today, we’re shining the spotlight on Jane Forbes, a Sunbelt Staffing physical therapist, for doing this and then some.
Outside of her work as a school-based physical therapist, Jane is a mother of three. When her daughter went away to college, she made a decision to adopt two children from Bulgaria. Her profession led her to work with children who had osteogenesis imperfecta or brittle bone disease. When she found out that there are many kids in orphanages with brittle bones, Jane began the adoption process and came away with Georgi and Pippi, both of whom have brittle bone disease.
Since relocating from Bulgaria, Georgi and Pippi have grown more independent — and loved by their mother, Jane.
We’re so inspired by your dedication to working with children, Jane!
