DOWN SYNDROME ON PURPOSE : THE LUCKY FEW - Heather Avis

This workshop will take a closer look at the beauty and worth of people with Down syndrome. Heather will share about how God has used her children with Down syndrome to give her a clearer view of Himself and how we are missing out on the fullness of God when we are not in relationship with people who have Down syndrome or other different abilities. We will look at tangible ways in which we can be in relationship with people with different abilities and help our children to do the same.

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

 

WHY DEAR MOM,

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.
