We live in Northeast Tacoma and our daughter is 7 years old. I help facilitate a diabetes support group for parents of children with diabetes that meets once a month in University Place Presbyterian Church in Tacoma. It is a fun group that invites children to play while their parents are meeting. My daughter really looks forward to the meeting so she can see her friends again. If you are interested in learning more about our group, I would love to share. I have sent you a friend request.
I was just thinking of calling to see if the group was still meeting. I am Landons mom and we have been to the meetings before. You have Vivian right? Can you remind me of the day the meetings are. We are going to start coming again.
Hi, what a small world! Yes, I am Vivian's mom. The meetings are the third Thursday of every month from 6:30 to 8pm. We are not meeting in July, but are planning on having a social gathering in the beginning of August just for fun (are close to picking a date and sending out email info). If you are not on Pam's e-mail list please send me your e-mail address and I will make sure that you get added to it. She will send out the information about the gathering coming up and also reminders before each meeting with the speaker information. So good to touch base again. Hope all is going well and I hope to see you again soon!
