From the moment I walked into Escape as a very anxious isolated parent, who was not able to go out or leave my child with others, it began a wonderful journey of belonging and new horizons.
I learnt others were out there…. others had really bad days….. others were struggling… others felt like I did….. others had…..
Through Escape those ‘others’ became my friends, my support and my social life. My journey hasn’t been easy but raising special children seldom is, but knowing that others were listening and helping was invaluable.
During my journey I have become stronger, which enables me to give back to Escape. Not everyone is able and we understand each individual family’s needs and capabilities. For me, whilst I am able, I will support Escape to continue to provide a very worthwhile, comforting and magical experience for all our members.
