Our group will be 5 years old in July!!! Our first meeting had a few parents and connections were made instantly. Connecting families who are going through this life of caring for a child with epilepsy is so important. There really aren't words that can describe how hard this journey can be for families and our Epilepsy warriors. And how isolating it can be.
But, it can also be so much fun and amazing memories can still be made, even in the darkest of times. And that is what this group has taught me, and I hope for others as well. I have learned how to "live in the moment" more and not be afraid to step out of my comfort zone. And that we're never alone.
Here's to a fresh new year of memories and connections!!
PS- here are some pictures of some fun we had in the Fall. Had a blast at a hockey game thanks to The Carolina Hurricanes special events staff giving our group 75 tickets!! Also, some pictures from our meetings and a highlight for the kids was making slime.... thank you Kristen K for all that you do for our kids!! We also had a bowling outing last weekend :)
