Finding the right support group when raising a special needs child can make all the difference. At Moms Making a Difference Coffees, mothers are doing just that. Moms, grandmothers and female caregivers of special needs children are encouraged to join the discussion with a casual, confidential time to talk among each other about the special stresses and circumstances that come along with raising a family with a special needs child. They also discuss how to make time to care for themselves, work with educators and other people caring for their children, and to make a difference in their kids’ lives to lead them toward success.
Visitors don’t need to sign up and there is no required commitment to attend every session, rather just join the group when schedules allow. Treat yourself by listening to other moms, share your stories, experience the support of others who have similar challenges and take some time to become stronger for those in your life who depend on you.
Meetings are held every other Saturday from 8-10am at Keystone Church in Saline, 3375 Saline-Waterworks Rd., 1/2 mile west of Saline-Ann Arbor Road. Benny’s Bakery pretzels, donuts and hot coffee are provided. For more information, please email, text or call Kathleen McClatchey Whiteman at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-646-8212.
