On Saturday, December 15th, 2012 we hosted our first Special Needs Holiday Party
Our friends at Courtyard Austin Northwest Arboretum generously donated space for the party.
We held a book drive and received many wonderful books that enabled us to have gifts from Santa for each of the kids. All books that were not used were then donated to Dell Children’s Medical Center. We have already started to collect books for next year.
Our wonderful music therapist, Danielle with Roads of Connection Music Therapys, led the group in some sing-a-long holiday music. The kids all got to hear their favorites.
Then of course, we had a very special guest – SANTA!
We had such a great time and we are already looking forward to and planning next year’s party. Stay tuned in fall 2013 for more details. We hope to be able to host even more families next year.
Sadly over the years we have lost the photos that were taken for this event. We have a few from our personal photos, but the professional photos have been lost.
