To summarize, here are some words to the wise from Swedish parents.

“We had August at Swedish Ballard. They were so nice. They were really calming. I wasn’t at all worried, nervous, or stressed out.” Kate B.

“Being at Swedish, it felt like we were at home. Everybody was friendly. It just felt like we were well taken care of, so it took that stress and edge away.” Greg M.

“The people were all so friendly. They really love what they are doing. I think that is one of the most important things.” Karla E.
