Dad finally did it!!!

Dad attended his first Caregiver Support Group Meeting. That hour and half meeting did a world of good for him. He came home with a little spring in his step and a little weight off his shoulders. He met a lot of wonderful people and got the chance to share his story and listen to others stories. He is looking forward to the next meeting. He loved it!!
It was a big step for him to do this.

Love Pauline

Great for Dad

Tell him we are as proud of him as if it was one of our kids and they just accomplished potty training

Re: Dad finally did it!!!

HIP HIP HORRAY for Dad. We all know talking about our LO's helps us in so many ways. He made a very hard decision and I'm sure it wasn't easy for him. He'll be so much better now that he has someone who understands and can relate to his feelings.

I'm glad for you both.

Love, Chris
