If we were having coffee right now…

… we might be at Bestsellers Books and Cafe. You might be the parent of one of the girls in the social group meeting in the next room. I’d be talking with you and other parents for a few minutes about your news and resources you might need.cup of coffee orange

If we were having coffee right now … your daughter might be in the next room, talking with friends she just met, or someone she met the last time our Girls’ Social Group met. And tomorrow, she’d be in school, telling her teacher or classmate about what her friend said last night. Her friend! (Sometimes kids with disabilities only have adult friends.)

If we were having coffee right now … I’d walk away so that I could go join the Girls” Social Group participants in the next room. I’m the facilitator. I really enjoy teens, and  my own daughter with disabilities is long past the teen years. Over the years, I gathered a lot of information and, dare I say, wisdom, about ways to make the transition to adulthood easier.

If we were having coffee right now … the girls might be having their own girl-time, while I come back to chat with you. I’d show you what the cup of coffee tealgirls talked about … maybe “what is a community” or “how do I join the community of adults as I grow up”. The group would have talked about places in the community where they go with or without parents.

If I were having coffee right now … the day before the girls group happens … I’d be hoping that you will be there tomorrow, October 18 at 6 PM, at Bestsellers in Mason.

    Hi Lydia, thank you for the invite. Hannah is interested but we are going to the Okemos football game tonight. Maybe another time! God’s blessings on you and your family.
