Spotlight on Success

With what has seemed like endless winter, a ray of sunshine and a mild day brings thoughts of all those activities we live for: long walks, sitting on the deck, picnics. And perhaps a new friendship, or even romance.

Six years ago, Boyd of Brooklyn and Alexis of Jamaica, Queens, had those same spring thoughts as they eagerly awaited the annual picnic sponsored by The Center for Family Support, an organization the assists individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. They knew there would be great food, fun games, lively entertainment and the chance to socialize with other adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and to meet their family members. What they didn’t know was that they would meet each other, and begin a friendship that would continue to grow.
