THE STORY:

I am Vanessa and Michael’s mom.  On the day Vanessa was born, I learned the overwhelming joy of motherhood and Michael reminded me, only one year later, how tender a newborn is and how all was complete and perfect with the world since I was blessed and honored to be their mother. Like them, I was born and raised in Miami, enjoying the sun, sand and water as much as possible; I swear Michael must have been a fish in a previous life the way he “lives” in the water. 


Michael has Autism and he has taught me to look for and find happiness in very many places where I would never have thought of looking, before. I am fortunate to have them and also fortunate to have the opportunity at Parent to Parent of Miami to share with families my experiences in raising a child with a disability and fulfill my desire to be able to support others, as others have supported me in this journey. 


Today, I am asking you to please donate to Parent to Parent of Miami’s Macy’s Shop for a Cause campaign. The funds raised will go directly to support our 5th Annual Family Engagement Picnic to be held February 24, 2018.  Our annual picnic helps families connect and network with other families and caregivers of children and adults with disabilities. As our picnic grows, so does the need to increase awareness on health and wellness issues for the families attending. 


The goal for this year is to include screening stations for health/wellness management to promote healthy living habits for the families we serve.  Who are the caregivers of children and adults with disabilities?  Parents 88%; siblings 5.3% and other 6.6%  


You can make a difference by donating $5 or more to my team. Or share how Parent to Parent of Miami has helped you by creating your own team to help us reach our goal.    


Thank you,

Marcia Morales
