two small requests
Reply with quote

1.) while i'm involved in a ds group, i've been searching and searching for a Christian mom's group who share a similar perspective. i've yet to find one at all in my area. i'm wondering if i am the woman for the job. i don't think i'd limit it specifically to mom's of children with ds, i think i'd like to encompass all special needs. just need some confirmation.

2.) me and my hubby just moved back from out of state and we are having a hard time connecting and making friends. we left great friends and life just seems 'blah' without them. i've been asking God to send us
a couple who have similar interests. *sigh* life just hasn't been quite the same without our buddies close by.

these are small, but i know God cares about even the smallest details.

I agree Amber. No request is too small and I am lifting yours up to Him in prayer.

Will pray for you. Good friendships don't happen overnight, they take time and almost a courtship process. Be patient and use the time to connect with eachother in deeper ways. My husband and I recently did a little couples counseling as a marital "tune-up." It might be a fun time to do something like that, especially as you go through these changes in your family life.

As for starting a group, I will tell you one of our closest friendships we have is another Christian couple who have a daughter with Down Syndrome. I said above that dear friendships can take time to develop, well, in the instance of our new-ish good friends, we bonded instantly over Down Syndrome. So, I will say, go for it! You never know who else is feeling isolated by having a child with special needs, and needs that connection with other parents who are dealing with a child with differences. You might just come away with a beautiful new friendship in the process!

Blessings,
K
