This morning we had our very first meeting with Wraparound. This meeting was to collect information and make introductions. Our worker is really nice and very eager to help us locate services that could benefit my family.
Today was basically, spent signing releases and collecting information, as I said earlier.
As I previously stated, our worker is very eager to help my Lost and Tired family to obtain some desperately needed help, in multiple areas of our lives.
As with the rest of life, nothing here is guaranteed. However, the way I look at this is nothing ventured, nothing gained. We may walk away from this with a stronger support system in place. We may also find that we have truly exhausted our options.
I’m choosing to be as positive as I can because my demeanor will set the tone for those around me.
Over the next few weeks, we will be meeting again and begin building our support team. This support team will consist of family and friends that want to help and support us, as well as many of the professionals in our lives as well. This is a really cool aspect of this program because they are seeking to help distribute the weight of what we are carrying.
Anyway, that was our very first Wraparound meeting and it lasted maybe an hour.
I realize that nothing has changed but at the same time, it feels as though we are slowly beginning to reclaim control over our lives.
This is something the Lost and Tired family is in desperate need of. I would like to thank our Wraparound coordinator for taking the time to meet with us this morning and for being as positive as she was. 🙂
