Every year I look forward to WAGR weekend. It is a place where everyone is the same and you don’t get looked at funny when your brother is screaming or going through another meltdown. When you are at WAGR Weekend you don’t have to feel alone, because you are not the only family that is going through the meltdowns, temper and anger problems. WAGR weekend is a time when you can connect with other siblings that share and endure the same things as you. This year I was very lucky to spend time with Rockie. I loved that we could have fun together and share stories about our siblings. WAGR Weekend is a great way for families to connect with one another and to feel at home. I am very excited that my family is hosting WAGR Weekend again in 2011 and I hope to see everyone there!
