    Hi All

    Thanks for sharing this Mike, I hope everyone enjoys it and can relate to some of what I said.

    It was a very emotional and yet a really rewarding experience making the film and I hope it leads to us getting lots of new members who will benefit from the great advice and friendly support that I have received and given out since joining.

    This is now my 4th year of being a Member and my 3rd year of being a Champion on here and its a very important part of my life.  I hope you all find the same.

    Thanks you for watching Smile

    Tracy, I have just watched your film and I am in tears, you seem such a lovely person and mum. Hearing your feelings about the diagnosis of Dylan is very emotional. Then of course his little brother too. I have only been on the forum for a few days now and already feel great knowing I can dip in and out to get advice. It is very important to me to be in touch with other parents that understand because as much as my family and friends try to be supportive they don't really understand in the same way. Like you said in your film you don't automatically get support straight after diagnosis. My son jack was diagnosed in April last year and we haven't had any help as such. I felt relief when we got the diagnosis because it made me understand jack so much better and we finally had some answers and realised we weren't being bad parents and in fact did already have lots of things in place to help jack, checklists, visual timetable etc. I also feel relief that I had something concrete to go to the school with and they had to then act and listen. We had been trying since primary 2 and he is now primary 7 to get the school to understand jacks issues and needs. Anyway you and your boys seem lovely, well done it's a very moving film thanks for sharing
