It’s already the 5th month of 2017! Has anyone else struggled with remembering the month we are in, wondering if it was December and how the time haas flown by? This picture is from our middle daughter’s junior prom.
I want to take a moment to say thank so many of you for taking the time to email me in the last few weeks. The last few months have been tough ones, lots of struggles and feelings of being overwhelmed. Although I dd not share all details, I shared enough to let you know it’s been an uphill climb, on a really steep hill. I LOVED the emails and messages thanking me for keeping it real, for allowing you to know others also have challenges, for letting me know you appreciated my honesty- I am touched. I am also so grateful for our platform here to not only have incredible local agencies and services to share with you but to have a place to share our stories and voices – good and bad. KNOWDifferent IS making a difference and it is because of you.
I can’t wait to see what the next part of 2017 brings to us!
May has a lot going on! The Autism Society Of Central Virginia’s Walk/ Run 5k. It is a SUPER FUN day with an amazing community! Come join us and see.
It’s also Mother’s Day, so I am suggesting that with 13 days until it arrives, you plan something for you. Even if it is 30 minutes, do it. We deserve to be celebrated, but, we also deserve to have a little time to ourselves. RCG HealthNetwork has shared a link for a great Mother’s Day Social Story here.
We have some new businesses coming in our directory that I think will be great. As usual, our local businesses and agencies are sharing some great new content. Be sure to check the site a few times a week as well as our bi monthly newsletter. Our Facebook page also offers daily info. Our calendar is full of ideas and continuing to grow.
If you have something you would like to share, an idea or anything at all, please get in touch. This site is for you, we need to and want to know what works! You can email Carissa or Tricia.
KnowDifferent.net is a site for all special need families that have to do anything “KNOWdifferently”. No matter what the diagnosis, our site will offer you a place to learn, a place to share and a place to feel KnowDifferent.
With Gratitude and Commitment,
