We learned yesterday that we will be receiving a generous scholarship from our local Arthritis Foundation! This makes our trip so much more manageable. The boys are very excited about going. I am so very grateful for the opportunity to learn more about my son's condition. Jacob has been battling JIA since the age of 5. This will be our first conference. We are planning to meet up with a few other families that we have met online through this journey. It is going to be great to be able to put a face to those moms that I have spoken to online for so long.
My boys and I have not taken a vacation for some time. We are taking advantage of the destination to be able to tour our capital. We planned on a couple of days around the conference to sight see. I am looking forward to showing the boys part of our nations history. The White House, the monuments, the Vietnam wall, Arlington Cemetery are a few of the places I would like to see!
Thank you again to the Arthritis Foundation for this awesome opportunity!
