Upcoming meeting

At our last Thriving Families meeting we had a speaker come and talk to us about communication devices. She obtained a grant from the united Way to help out 50 families with up to $300 each towards the cost of a communication device. She will even help you and your family figure out what works the best for your child. I will be speaking more about this and passing out information at our next Thriving Families meeting.
The next Thriving Families Mtg. is on Tuesday June 16th at 6pm at Ability First. Please remember to email me at madrigalmama@yahoo.com if you need childcare.
At our next meeting I will passing out some information from the previous speaker and discussing a possible Family Picnic for our Thriving Families Group. I know a few of us have been going through a lot lately and really need a vent session! Can't wait to see you all there.

members of thriving families!

Email me or comment here if you have any questions, comments or want me to post a photo or comment, etc..

Welcome to Thriving Families!

Well today we said goodbye to Jennifer Maglio as our leader and hello to me. Jennifer has some big shoes to fill but since my feet are much bigger, I should do okay..ha ha!
First, a little about me. My name is Jennifer Madrigal and I am the mother of 3 boys, Isaiah, Andrew and Nicholas. Nicholas, is 5 and is deaf and autisitic. If you are in the group you have heard my struggles and know that I prefer to try to be as positive and faithful as possible...this said it doesn't always mean that I am. I'm just a mom trying to do whats best for her son in a world where everyone doesn't "get" him and his needs. I really enjoy our little group and I truly believe that we all need each other. I'm looking forward to seeing what God has in store for me in this group and I know we all continue to build upon the beautiful foundation that Jennifer Maglio has laid for us all!
this blog will be our own little place to post news and info., announcements, etc. Please look for more information to come as the moth progresses! By the way, I don't always spell check and sometimes I just don't care so just a little disclaimer about that. LOL
