So, now I wait. Again. I told KC about the lack of support groups and we were thankful that we knew of at least one family who had a child with Downs Syndrome. And I realized that if I'm going to want anything to happen, I'm going to have to MAKE it happen. I can't expect the world to just magically have everything we need in order to make this new living arrangement work. I'm going to have to put forth some effort, go WAY out of my comfort zone, and be willing to be a leader who wants to MAKE it happen. I owe it to my child to fight for him and to either find or create the services and support we need to thrive as a family. So, I guess it's time to dust of my "leader" hat and add to my to-do list: "Find out what it takes to start up an ACTIVE Downs Syndrome support group in Spokane, WA" .
