Think back to the moment you received your child’s diagnosis. Did you feel helpless, perhaps hopeless? Maybe you felt as if you were in a huge world all by yourself, only to realize that maybe that is exactly how our children feel, in a world all by themselves. A few days after the diagnosis, you may be asking yourself, where do I find someone to talk to, “where do I get information that says I’m doing
the right thing for my child?”.

could feel normal, it has all been worth it!
I simply love the opportunity to reach out, to tell people you are not alone and to ease anxiety of being judged for something they, nor their child, cannot control. I am honored that this opportunity presented itself to us and that we can help be a voice to a community that has been silent for so long. I ask that you help me in spreading this voice by sharing your own. As I always say, we are our child’s best advocate and the more we “beat our drum” the louder our voice will become. Be sure to reach out at every chance you get.
