THIS ROSH HASHANAH,
RAISE A NOISE WITH SOPHIA AND HER FAMILY
Sophia's parents, Lauren and Daniel, share their story with you...
When Sophia was about six months old, we realised she was not reaching key milestones. Countless consultations later, we were told that she has a rare chromosome disorder. This has resulted in our precious child having to live with profound and multiple learning disabilities.
Five years ago, we knew very little about children with special needs. Now, we know it's not just the child who has special needs, but the whole family.
In spring 2015, we got in touch with Norwood. Since then we've made full use of its services; services money just can't buy. From warm and caring clubs for Sophia, to invaluable parenting support for us, to supportive siblings' groups for Sophia's elder sister.
Norwood has been there at every stage of our journey and will continue to play a key role in all our lives. Being the parents of a child with special needs is physically and emotionally exhausting, resulting in feelings of guilt, failure, pride, heartbreak, silence, isolation...
And through it all, Norwood's been there for us.
Now it's your chance to be there for Norwood.
Thank you and Shana Tova
