2019 Annual Campaign – Colton’s Story

“I am a foster mom and received a phone call for the placement of a ten week old baby who was abused at five weeks old. He suffered a traumatic brain injury. When I met him, I was stunned by his appearance. He held a downward gaze, his body was limp, and he did not have functional use of his limbs. The silence was deafening. He never cried. During discharge, I was taught how to administer his medications, feed him through a feeding tube, and was told he would never make ‘a meaningful recovery.’ It was heartbreaking. I had never cared for a medically fragile child before and I was unsure of what his future held. Colton proved them wrong. One of the [...]

The Arc Alliance & Ambucs Partnering in Support

The joy in a child's face is absolutely priceless! When you couple that joy with a families emotional appreciation it can be humbling.  This past Wednesday night  The Arc Alliance Children's Services partnered with our local Ambucs Chapter to provide four families and their child with a first tryke. As you can see from the sampling of images below, it was a great night. The Arc Alliance Children's Services has had many opportunities and the privilege to partner with Ambucs and provide children with a Tryke Bike. On this night, we were happy to assemble four families and finalize the measurements and adjustments to each child's unique Tryke. It was awesome watching each child light up when they realized it was their own [...]

Someone In Our Corner – by Anne Marie Newell

My son Matthew's journey started when my son was diagnosed with PDD at 21 months.  We were soon thereafter introduced to MARC because we were told that he was entitled to certain therapies at home, including speech, OT and PT too, I believe.  These people were frequent visitors in our home to help Matthew bridge the gap in the areas that needed boosting, so they were coming often 2x per week.  As you can imagine, the therapists would eventually feel like friends because of the amount of time they spend with you and your child.  It is a good thing to have when you are just starting to get used to the "new life" with the impact the diagnosis can have on you as the [...]
