Wishin’ and Hopin’

April 16, 2020

We received this amazing message and song via Messenger from BeConnected staff members Nate and Danielle – thank you for sharing Wishin’ and Hopin’!

 

“My wife Danielle Dowling and I are both support workers with BeConnected in Victoria, BC and our residents are understandably having a tough time coping with the recent disruptions to their routines. Specifically, they miss taking part in their day programs where they would regularly socialize with their workers/friends and enjoy activities such as swimming, playing music, and going to the library.

The inspiration for this song came as I was helping a resident to bed one evening. He said “I wish my program would open, I hope they do soon” and when I replied “So you’re wishin’ and hopin’ that your program would be open” He laughed at the rhyme and repeated it back in his own melody because he’s such a musically minded guy! The lyrics of this song are tailor made for him but I hope that all of you will enjoy it.

I assure you that my wife and I are better support workers than singers…Thanks for watching and keep wishin’ and hopin’”
