With all my heart and soul, I L-O-V-E this group. LOVE. I love that I can post at 2am about my son not sleeping and SOMEONE will be THERE for me to give me a cyber HIGH-FIVE and give me much needed support to make it through the night. I love that it is REALLY helping other parents. You can find us on Facebook- Spectrum Parents Events.
This group has grown beyond what I ever imagined and most of us are local (Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk and beyond). We have some near and dear members who live in other states that came to us from Surfer’s Healing.
In Spectrum Parents, we pour our hearts out about things we can’t or won’t share anywhere else. From daily concerns like stimming and sleepless nights to bigger, more HEART-STOPPING, what am I going to do concerns like:
“Having to move and knowing the change may make your child “go into himself” for who knows how long.
Knowing you child needs more help, guidance, and care while the school turning a deaf ear.
Wondering if my child is going to make it in this world.”
Someone is there-to hold your hand and let you know you’re not alone.
Too boot, we have moved off Facebook and had incredible over the top fun get togethers, parties and adventures.
Easter Egg Hunt (I made the paper!) Surfing, Pool Parties, Santa Party, Girls Retreats, Mommy Needs Me Time, and Beach Nights.
I am over-the-top thankful for the friendships I have from this group. I KNOW that even if Facebook or Meet-Up comes crashing down one day, we will stay connected and tied together not only through our kids, but through the bonds we have created sharing, venting, and helping one another.
A portion of all sales and membership dues goes to admin to make these events possible.
