“WIMS was a foreign concept to me when I first came. I was not sure of what to expect from a group of parents and caregivers providing support to one another. After all, if you can barely keep your own head above water how would it help to submerge yourself in other people’s problems? I was also afraid of talking and making the problems real.
I went to my first meeting thinking it would be my last. I remember opening my mouth to speak and feeling overwhelmed with grief as we were asked to tell our names and our children’s (child’s) diagnosis… WIMS has helped me to become a better parent and advocate for my children. I have learned from other parents and speakers how to navigate a system which can be overwhelming. It has helped to lay a foundation for me to continue to build on. The parents have turned out to be my safe harbour in the storm.”Pamela Walsh
