A Day in the Life of...

So some of you who have adopted children with special needs may be wondering what the life of your child will be as an adult.  You have him or her under your care for the years leading up to school, through school, and possibly somewhat after he or she graduates...but then what?  For me, this was one question that I did have an answer too.  I contract work out for a highly-motivated, highly-interactive day service provider called Disability Supports of the Great Plains.  What my previous idea of a day service provider was, has been completely blown out of the water.  These are just a few of the highlights...
Annual Rock Springs Trip-
The clients get to camp out, canoe,
ride horses, shoot guns, archery, hike, and explore.

Dance and Party (and don't forget karaoke) 
there's always a good reason to celebrate!
 And of course, exercise with me!  
"Rowing the Boat" with bands
Doing a little Zumba
 Dancing to the Cha Cha Slide

Music lessons, piano or singing

And this doesn't include the friendships, jobs, and relationships these adults have along the way.  I am so excited to think that someday Blake will be able to interact with people just like him, who love him just as we do, and who will make sure he gets the best care.  Thank you DSGP for this opportunity for our loved ones who need just a little extra care.
