I’ve always been someone who has found it hard to ask for help – I don’t like burdening others. When I first decided to start the Girls on the Spectrum drop-in I didn’t ask for help, but after I wrote about our first session on my blog, the session where no one came and I put a request out to spread the word – YOU stepped up and helped – our second and third drop-ins have been amazing and I wanted to say THANK YOU.
Thank you for spreading the word, for making calls to people you know, for offering donations of games, supplies, help and money, for posting our information on your websites, television programs, in your newsletters and in your information packages and also for your amazing words of love and support.
Thanks to YOUR support, this is becoming a reality for Miriam and other girls in our Community who are on the autism spectrum and need the opportunity to spend time with other girls just like themselves.
In a time where we are all so busy and we sometimes feel disconnected – this has reminded me that community is alive and well and there for you when you need help – without even having to ask for it. It really does take a village to raise a child – especially when your child has been diagnosed with a disability – and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart!
