Finding out your child has a hand difference or acquiring a hand injury yourself can be challenging and emotional. Talking with other families that have been through a similar experience can be beneficial, and can help you answer some of the multitude of questions you might have.
Once you have been through such an experience, you could offer immense help and support to a family that is just going through a similar time as well.
“The number of times I had said, “I just want to talk to other parents that have been through this” — it was an emotional relief to do so. Suddenly everything seemed possible and our future very connected.”
— Justine, Analise’s mother
