Pathways to Independence Breakfast: $130,385 WORTH OF SUCCESS!

Yesterday was the First Annual "Pathways to Independence Breakfast" to benefit TESH, Inc.  I attended the benefit with a friend and colleague of mine, Cheryl Shippy of Pioneer Title.

Pathways to Independence Breakfast, TESH, Inc.

Since I forgot my camera at home, I took the above photo with my cell phone while speaker Vickie Lesley (whose son, Zach, was diagnosed with autism at two years of age) detailed her story.  In her speech she detailed the joys and challenges of raising a special needs child.  She was informative and passionate, invoking feelings and love she has for her child.  As a mom of a two year old, I found myself engulfed in her words and moved by her frankness.

On each of the tables was a poem that Vickie wrote for Zach when he was almost three years of age.  Among her words she writes...

"The fears, that at times, threatened to consume you,
Yet like the tide, would gently retreat
Giving you rest, comfort and Peace..."

I am happy to report that the event brought in $130,385 for TESH, Inc.

Maryellen, thanks for sharing.  The parents who raise children with special needs are certainly "special" themselves!
