Sibling Day is Almost Here!
May 7 is just around the corner and I am getting really excited for our Sibling Day at the YAI Conference. Every year this turns out to be a special day when siblings from all over get together to hear presentations, share stories and just be with others who have had similiar experiences, feelings and thoughts. There is nothing quite like the bond that the siblings of individuals with developmental disabilities share! And this year we are lucky enough to have Don Meyer, whom I always refer to as the "Father of the Sibling Movement," with us. He is one of my favorite people on the planet and a pleasure to be around. We end the day by getting together for dinner at a restaurant in midtown, within walking distance of the hotel. It's a great way to kick back and recap a wonderful day. I hope to see many of you there!
