Newly Diagnosed?



Hello there, it is nice to see you here on the website.


I know your looking for answers and have many questions. I can't say I have all the answers to the questions you might have but I can share with you what I have done for myself what worked and what hasn't worked for me. I can share my first hand personal experience and knowledge of living life with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome.

Blogging is probably the best thing I do for myself. Through my blog, I've made connections with other parents, found answers to difficult questions, and gained the support I can't always find in real life or in online support groups.  The second best thing I do for myself is reading blogs written by other parents of kids with special needs. The third best thing I have done is I have taken parent mentor training and advocating training I have connected with strong amazing parents, family and formed new friendships locally and internationally that will last a life time. 

I have equipped myself with knowledge from being an active role in the 22q11.2 deletion community since I was diagnosed when I was 21

My scary hard journey is found on this blog on my blog Our Journey


I am now 34 and have seen first hand the good bad and ugly side of living life with this uncommon disorder.
