Dear Parents and Caregivers,

We’ve met and come across some of the most amazing, determined, dedicated, and hardworking parents and caregivers. We’ve heard dozens of stories from parents and caregivers, whom have expressed and shared their heartfelt story with such vulnerability. As Brené Brown says, “Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity.” Thank you for sharing your stories with us as we’ve sat with you through mutual tears; we know it takes a significant amount of courage to express these feelings and thoughts. 

Whatever stage(s) you and your love ones maybe in, whether it’s denial, anger, depression, grief, shame, or acceptance, remember your ABA team is here for you and also your community. As new family coming to terms and accepting ABA into your lives, we highly suggest joining a community of parents whom have gone through the same process. We would suggest for these family to reach out through ABA forums, join parents helping parents, set up play dates with your program supervisors with other families who are taking the same pathway. Take your child to magical kingdom in Palo Alto to meet other families.
