Texas Parent to Parent Conference

Dwight and I attended a Parent to Parent Conference on Friday and Saturday. It was interesting. Some of the classes were better than other classes. Unfortunately, some of the speakers were not aware of who their audiences would be. Some thought they were speaking to parents only, when the majority of their classes were professionals, and vice versa.

Unfortunately, we ended up not feeling comfortable using the childcare available at the conference ... a story for another day. The conference is intended to help bring parents of special needs kids together and to learn from one another. I really was very focused on attending the sessions and checking on Ryan & Dwight. So, I didn't meet a lot of people.

I did meet a great couple though. They have a young daughter that they adopted when their 4 kids were all older. They shared some of the things that worked for their daughter. It sounds like Ryan and her share a lot of similar qualities. And, you know what? She walks. She started when she was about 4 1/2. Isn't that wonderful! Oh, the things we have to look forward to!
