This is absolutely wonderful news. This area has needed some type of inpatient pediatric unit for disabled children. Congratulations to Good Shepherd and the children in need from the Lehigh Valley!

I think this is totally wonderful for the children who need rehabilitation. I feel it is long overdue for the area. My own 38 year old son went to Good Shepherd, paralyzed from the neck down and now he is walking and I will forever be grateful that his therapist walked into his life and never gave up on him. I do have a fear that the facility will get too big and forget where its roots began. I fear they will lose that closeness they have with every patient and that is part of healing too. I hope they will remember Dr. Raker's motive and actually it all started with handicapped children. I hope Good Shepherd never becomes a big business but stays the institution with a heart that I have come to know it by.
