I have to say, I know I’m really lucky, I have some amazing friends. I’m not one for having hundreds of ‘best friends’ because, apart from anything, i just don’t have the time. So, I spend time with those I love and we laugh together and support each other no matter what our situations and make the time count. I have, however, made some fantastic friends online. Other parents who are walking in my shoes. This isn’t something I could have imagined before having Freddie and being thrown into the world of special needs and disability but now I really don’t know what I would do without them! Many of my online friends, I have now met in person and those friendships are growing. I am grateful we live in an online era. Walking this path would be very lonely and isolating without the communities I am a part of, the support and understanding I have found and the friendships I have formed.
Thank you to everyone who is part of this community. I really want to grow it and reach as many parents as possible and build our support network. If you feel this way too, please share this page far and wide. x
