Week 1 – All About You and Your Identity
Week 2 – What is Meaningful to You?
"Family is very important to us. The problem is, it is more important to us than it is to our families. We try to make the most of our time together but it is usually only once a year, if that. But I guess, life moves on and we try to make the most of it."
"So where family has failed, friends have filled in. When we needed to find a handicap accessible house, our choice was to move closer to family or friends. We chose friends. While we would love to see them more, they are the ones who are there when needed most. They provide the support we need when it is needed. They help us through this journey and keep us sane."
"The most important things to me are not things...they are family. This week we were blessed with this beautiful little guy Ryan, my nephew. He has a long road ahead of him but his family will always be there for him."
"It's important to me to make time for our other kids. Being a sibling for a special needs child can be very hard. There is so much time spent on doctor visits, hospital stays, and everyday care. My other kids need to know they are equally important."
"Family is very important to me. Family means sharing happiness and sorrowful together, mutual supporting and most importantly Love. They have been a Big part of my daughters life. I am so grateful she can enjoy their love. They love her so much and they really are a blessing to her and my family. They really help us out while we work. Biggest supporters. My family provides the support when we need when it's needed. They help with our journey and they show the love for our Sara. Love the time with my family." ❤️
"My family is most important to me! We don't have anyone to help us, as it's me and my husband as a team. He is our full time financial supporter and I'm the full time stay at home care giver to now 2 medically challenging girls."
"Outdoors is our happy place. My daughters have spent so much time cooped up inside, they love the outdoors! Any chance we get we are outside for a walk, playing in water, sitting at our picnic table, having a fire etc."
"This is My aunt Debby. Every year her and my uncle Lance open their home in TN to my family. It's like a yearly make a wish. We get to relax, recharge, kids get to swim and play, and experience some new things. It's so meaningful to have the time with them and away from home and Doctors and worries."
"This is Jaxon at his therapeutic horse riding program. The fact that places like this exist are so meaningful to us. It opened a whole new world and experience that gave Jaxon confidence and something to talk about and share. I'm so grateful to people who donate and volunteer to these organizations. This is not something I ever thought was possible. So it means so much that it's available."
