Dear Mom Conference

Heather is so excited to be speaking at a brand new conference for moms who have kids with Down syndrome. Let us introduce you to:

Dear Mom Conference



As mother's raising children with Down Syndrome, we've discovered through  community and vulnerability that we can thrive if we work together.  We are all accustomed to the endless late night google searches, specialists appointments, and therapies. Thankfully, beyond those resources, we've found this wonderful secret that gives us strength when we share our stories and experiences, one mother to the next. 

Hosted by moms just like you, Mercedes Lara and Amy Amaradio, are excited to meet you, offer some space, and insight in hopes to create a bright and beautiful future for our children with Down Syndrome.
