Our first day.
The first day at conference is always very exciting! So many emotions are going through our bodies. It is such an amazing and emotional experience being surrounded by families going through the same struggles as us, being around those who understand and walk in the same shoes for much of our daily life. It's so motivating to see others who are giving their all to get their children to conference, knowing that some of those families are also working day and night to get the fundraising to get their kids here just like we do. Because it is not a choice, we need to get ours kids this therapy. Once you experience what this amazing program has to offer you dedicate everything in you to get them back to conference so that they can receive this life changing therapy and quality of life. A year ago we attended our very first mini clinic. Svetlana assessed Silas and said "I want to see this boy at conference!" I looked her in the eyes and told her "We will be there!" "We will do everything we can to get him there!" To finally see progress in your children after two years of traditional therapy with little results is so refreshing. To know that there is a method out there that could greatly improve your child's quality of life when they were given a diagnosis so scary an discouraging. Like I said, this therapy is not a choice for us, it is a necessity.
