I couldn’t get the words out. I burst into tears when I was asked to share my birth story at mothers’ group. None of the other women could relate and I felt like I didn’t belong. Which is why Kindred’s peer support is so crucial.
I don’t want to even imagine where I would be without Kindred. Those first two years I had no one. That’s a long time, especially at the beginning when you feel so overwhelmed and alone.
No one in Australia had Frankie’s rare genetic condition. There were no specialists and no support groups. I was so alone. But through Kindred I found my people. I found my tribe.
