What Experienced Families Have to Share

Hear from Experienced Families

Donna Desjardins - The opportunities for your son or daughter to do what they want to do in their life with the flexibility that FMS offers means there’s no other option.

Robin Acton - Don’t be intimidated by the administrative obligations. Get connected to other families… Be driven by your vision. Be clear about what a good life looks like.

Wendy McDonald - You don’t have to know all the answers and you don’t have to do it alone. It isn’t as big or as overwhelming as we think it’s going to be.

Kim Edwards & Dave Kinders - It will seem hard to take on, but in the big picture, it’s worth it. The key is deciding your vision as a family.

Laurie Peterson - It gives you the freedom to do what you can. So grab onto that opportunity. It’s slow and it’s hard, but the opportunities you create with it are not going to be created anywhere else.

Louise Gendreau & Robert Howard -If you’re the type of person that can look at what unfolds as teaching you something, you are in store for an adventure.

Donna Wood - It’s hard. Don’t be afraid to reach out for support. So often we feel
like we’re the only one who has gone through this, but that’s not true.

Dave & Kathy Gunderson - To be able to choose and tailor supports allows our daughter to design the life she would like. Hannah can choose her own path. She doesn’t have to fit within a box of what someone else expects for her life.

Barb MacIntyre - Get connected with other families. If you can dream it, you can do it with FMS.
