Erik Quinn: The Heart of a Family: Connections

Connections

I just e-mailed our regional WSA chairperson and offered to host an event in our state for WS families. Washington is just too far for us to travel for our region's annual family picnic, so this year I felt inspired (a complete surprise to me) and decided to do something about it.

Anybody interested?

As far as I know, Erik is the only child in town these days with WS. Hmmm. What if I threw a party and nobody came?

Ah, heck. You never know until you try. We'll see what happens. I'll just make some two-sided banners. If nobody shows up, I'll flip them over and instantly change the party's theme.

Spontaneous seems to be my middle name these days.

That sounds great! Make sure you call the newspaper with the details and don't overlook the town’s freebie papers as well. I hope it’s a hit, and remember whoever shows up is meant to be there. ;)

You'd be surprised at how far people are willing to travel.

Hey Heidi. We're in Oregon. To find a conference, go to the WSA website and hit the regional events section. I highly recommend going to a conference if you can and making some connections!
