I have been so blessed to have lots of lifelong friends who share my life. These families are on the same track as I am. They are parents of kids with special needs. I worry about families who feel isolated. When parents are not able to step out and connect with other families, they seem to struggle so much more coming to terms with the world they find themselves in.
I was so energized by this group...they have such incredible potential to make things better for new families to get the support, information and friendship that is so essential to thrive. Parent to parent support is so vital and has such a unique role that not just anyone can provide.
To have some one by your side who "gets it" is a gift...it is life changing. The people I met last night gave me such hope for the future here in our NW suburban area. Transformations are in progress here in Elk River and that just makes my day..
