I am not alone – Sibling Support Workshop

We held our first sibling support workshop today at Hutt City Baptist Church. It was great to see the idea by Sinead finally come to fruition.

10 siblings mostly intermediate/young teenagers came along. We started with pizza and just getting to know each other.

Georgina Kirk facilitated some great discussion on what it is like to grow up with a sibling with Down Syndrome. She shared from her experiences growing up with her brother Spencer.

Some of the feedback was:

"Its great to know I am not alone"

"Everything about today was great"

"Can we do this every Saturday?"

"Great connecting with others and talking"

"Lots of laughs and Georgina as great fun"

The church had a great flexi space with ping pong, pool tables, foosball. We finished off the afternoon with milkshakes.

Some of the clips we watched and talked about were:


Thanks so much to Georgina sharing and all the prep she put in to make the afternoon a success.
