Moments in Time: Parent's Stories

Moments in Time: Parents write about special moments in the lives of their children with Williams syndrome

One thing that parents, and other family members need when they find out their child has Williams syndrome is support. We have a wonderful community on the website, Listserv, and Facebook pages. We also have informative books that people can buy, such as Fulfilling Dreams, and Ben’s Big Decision.

This year, we're building an additional means of support -- a collection of stories, to be published in 2013.  And these stories will be yours.

How did you feel when you found out your child has Williams syndrome? What did you encourage your child to do, even though others said it would be impossible? What funny, but special moment have you experienced? What breakthrough did you witness, and how did you feel? These are some of our ideas. We’re sure you have your own. Feel free to write about any topic (related to your child and Williams syndrome) that comes to mind. Keep in mind that we envision the final product to be a very positive means of support.
