I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
The Circles of Life 2011 Conference (http://www.colwisconsin.org/) is coming to Milwaukee April 28 & 29th at the Milwaukee Hyatt Regency. This is Wisconsin's annual conference for families of children with disabilities and professionals. The keynote speaker is going to be Cindy Bentley, whom I have written about in the past (http://www.cudahynow.com/blogs/communityblogs/103202369.html)
This will by myfamilies first Circles of Life Conference. Beside hearing Cindy speak, a couple of other highlights for me will be:
The sibs workshops. This will be an opportunity for my two younger kids to interact with other siblings who have a brother or sister with a disability.
The 25 break out sessions that my wife and I will split up to attend. The session range from Birth to 3 Programs all the way through End of Life Issues. There are also many transition sessions. It is never to early to start thinking about the future for my son. I want to make sure that I have all of the information available to ensure that my son will have every opportunity to live his life as he sees fit.
