Anchored: Firm & Secure is a conference for moms navigating the rough waters of raising a child with a disability and for all women weathering the storms of life. Do you feel like you are being tossed around by the waves and wind? You need an anchor to calm your soul. Motherhood is challenging for all moms, and even more so when you’re a mom of a child with special needs. Life can be frustrating, overwhelming and isolating, but you are not alone. We’re here for you. Let’s navigate through the rough waves together.
NOTE: Anchored is a conference suitable for any woman, so all are welcome. But our very special guests will be moms of the exceptional child.
