British Columbia Families? Get together?

Hi all!

It's been a long time for me to be on the boards. Once upon a time, when Dani was a baby, there was no support to be found in Western Canada. I organized a support group, and was actively doing outreach work when requested to help new familes. (West Coast Erb's Palsy Support Group). After some trainwreck personal events, I had to fold the group, and look after my and Dani's needs only.

My child is 15 yrs old now, and I took time off so I could take a breather.
What I am wondering is, are there any families in BC, the lower mainland that would be interested in getting together sometime?

I did set up two picnics in the past when my support group was active, and Dani was little. Both had a really good turn out. I have felt bad for slipping away, and haven't been in touch with those families since.
I am not wanting to, nor have time to facilitate another group, but it might be nice to network with local families.

If you're interested, post a message :) Hopefully all ages baby-teen-adult.

I am in the Langley, BC area.

What about you?
