Not only do they give grants and help kids find their families, but every year, they host a reunion for their families so that the new parents can network with each other, the kids can make friends with other kids with similar backgrounds, etc. This is extremely helpful, as our families are UNIQUE, and connecting with others like us is invaluable!! (You may remember that we used to go to gatherings with other families who had kids with missing limbs when Reese was younger - this is similar.)
Maylee, Erik and Violet and I (along with my mom) just got back from spending 5 days in Kentucky with a number of other "RR" families. We had a ball!!! Because I know pictures are valuable, I wanted to share some of our pictures and adventures with you! For privacy reasons, I will only share pictures of our own family (with a couple of exceptions). Trust me when I say that these reunions are IMPORTANT. It is just a very casual time to visit and gain support. No classes were held, no workshops, nothing formal; just the way I like it!
Ready for pictures? ;o)
