A last word from me for the year – thank you to all of you who have been part of this network! It has been wonderful to get to share in your year, the highs and lows, to make new friends and walk alongside old ones. A special shout out to Shelley and Jade who spent a lot of time on the DI facebook discussion group, sharing and welcoming people.
Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate it! Especially for those us who struggle at this time of year due to trauma, loneliness, family stress, and poverty, I hope you can find some peace and hope. If not, I hope you can keep your heads down and hide out until it’s over for another year. My thoughts are with you. We are a caring and generous community that I feel deeply privileged to be part of. I’ve bought a couple of gifts that have been given in your name if you wish. We give so much to each other and in a small way are also helping to make the world a safer place for kids, and to help them communicate.
