Mission Statement:

To bring parents the support, tools, and resources to not only accept and understand their child’s diagnosis, but to help provide crucial information to allow them to make informed, educated decisions for their child regarding their special needs and the true meaning of advocacy. Throughout this journey we hope to give parents the empowerment of knowledge, confidence, and hope.
