I was so happy to find out that NJ Walks for TS at Princeton has raised more then $12,000. It felt so good to see so many people come together for a single purpose. My youngest son, Aiden, not only did the walk, but was so happy to see other kids who have the same tics.
There was even one young man who liked having Mario Brothers figures, and my son totally related and played without feeling “different.” A sense of belonging set in for him and he now wants to walk/play again.
My family and I are hoping that this becomes an annual thing, so that next year we can get more people to walk and donate. ‘Til then, we will continue to attempt to find play groups or other children in our area for him to socialize with.
