It requires PATIENCE ?

Hello, 2016 is a great year! Are you feeling sad and wondering how you or a close friend or a relative will be able to cope with that special kid this year? Don’t you worry God send’s help! Anyways, am here to give you some tips on what you need to know about these ebullient children.

First, I must tell you coping with a child with DS is not an easy task it is very challenging but all it requires is a lot of PATIENCE because this child might not be able to grow and develop at the same pace with the other kids but this child will definitely catch up! It just requires time and because of their peculiarities they can be very slow. Parents with a DS child should endeavor to treat the child as a normal child because they respond to LOVE quickly.

Surprisingly, most of these kids are really gifted and are very good at their talents, parents should help identify their gifts and work on it, USE THEIR ABILITIES TO GROOM THEM. You can help them use their talents. Because they are special they derive so much joy in their abilities. These kids are very lovely and compassionate.Lastly, DO NOT look down on them. They are unique in their own way, if you want to bring out the best in this child, it starts from the foundation and the way you relate with this child. Uhmmm…..such lovely dudes, give them the opportunity to use and showcase their God given talents and you will be very surprised at the outcome, just watch them well to be able to identify their gifts and ask God to give you the wisdom to be able to help them.

Enjoy your week.

What is Down Syndrome?

Hello people, Christmas is around the corner ! I guess you are excited…

Now, lets continue on our journey or lets say our lecture on Down Syndrome.
Now, what is Down Syndrome?
Down Syndrome usually shortened as DS is also called Trisomy 21 is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of all or part of a third copy of chromosome 21. It is typically associated with physical growth delays, characteristic facial features , and mild to moderate intellectual disability.
It is common to experience a wide range of emotions when your baby is born with Down syndrome . While you have joy from your child’s birth,you will also need to learn about and care for his or her special health care needs.

Most families choose to raise their child, while some consider foster care or adoption.

Support groups and organizations can assist you in making the best decision for your family.

Hope you find this piece of information useful…

If you have questions as regards this, please ask on !

Lots of Love !

 

My Experience in Windows of Opportunities

‪+234 806 134 3664‬ 20151116_152941

To say I did not enjoy the WOP (Windows of Opportunities) meeting conference 2015 is to say the least. My name is ADEOLA ,incase you are wondering what my name is….lolz ! My experience in Windows of opportunities (WOP) had a great impact in my life and it will forever be a memorable one. I was given the opportunity to do one out of all I love doing most which is impacting and touching lives positively. I empowered about close to 25 girls, teaching them ICT (Information and communication Technology) and how to transform, implement and move their businesses into the next level using ICT in a dynamic and a practical way. Also illustrated how Technology has caused more good than harm which is available for people who are willing and determined to unlock their hidden potential to get the great satisfaction it has in store for them. My inquisitive audiences were also passionate and were ready to learn more about Technology. There is nothing more interesting and captivating than planning for an event and seeing it work miraculously. I must confess that the WOP organizers did a wonderful job. The timing was excellent, the program flow was superb, it was also impactful and above all God took absolute control of the program as I could tell on the expression on each faces that they all left the program fulfilled and happy that the time invested was worthwhile. Meanwhile, I was intrigued by the program transition from the commencement of the program till the end. There was never a dull moment. The program started by 9am with a welcome speech from the promoter of the WOP initiative Olayinka  Odumosu, afterwards, she introduced the first speaker on stage. The first speaker spent close to two hours discussing computer in a theoretical way with practical illustration. The second speaker spent almost 2hours teaching hands on computer practical. Finally, we visited Omatek Computer Limited where we saw how they assemble computer cases, speakers, keyboards and mouse. We also learnt about solar system techniques. My experience at Omatek was motivating and inspiring as some of their staff welcomed us and told us some life changing experiences. I won’t hesitate to accept the offer to come for another WOP because I really enjoyed every moment I spent there.

One girl reaching another girl !

On my way back from the old people’s home today,the keke marua i boarded from Omole phase1 to beager was a 28yr old excited and high spirited female driver ! Her name is favour Edafe. Favour is a young lady from Delta state who finished from the college of Education Oro in kwara state. She made up her mind to do this job because she needed to survive. At the least ,favour makes up to 6,500naira daily…She is hardly harassed by touts because of the boldness she had in defending herself and insisting she wasn’t going to pay them any money !Favour usually closes by 7:30pm but she decided to close by 9:30pm today which was unusual because she needed to make more money. Although, favor’s parent are alive,she understands her humble background and would rather be a keke driver than get involved in harmful habits just to survive.The moral of this true life story is that no situation can drown you ,if you don’t permit it !For every challenge there is a positive and legitimate way of escape.There are legitimate things you can do even when you have not gotten a job !

YOU have ideas in YOU !

I am not asking you to be a keke maruwa driver but i am saying YOU can discover a legitimate niche and stay on it !

LIVING AND LOVING…

Living and loving...If you ask me, the greatest legacy anyone can leave is the lives they have touched, the love they have given to others, the word they shared to bring eternal life to another who’s in danger of eternal damnation. Indeed, nothing outlives the kindness you have shown to that fellow in need, the compassion  which has moved you to visit the sick, the encouragement you have given to that (wo)man without hope, the care you have shown to that fella who feels rejected, the caring hand extended to the broken hearted, the clothes given to the naked, the water given to the thirsty, the hospitality showed to that least deserving person…..the list goes on and on.

None of us have seen God at anytime, but I tell you, whatever you do to any of His creation in his name, you inadvertently do so unto Him, and your Labor of love will surely, NEVER go forgotten, here on earth, and in eternity. So, never withhold from being a charitable being of creation. GOD Bless You…

WHICH MEANS, YOU NEED TO HEAR THIS…

Window of Opportunity, an initiative of AMORVARD, will be reaching out to 25 girls in Nembe, Bassambiri Village, Bayelsa State this October 2015. These girls will be empowered with various entrepreneurial skills like soap making, beads making, ankara designs, etc. There shall also be talks on handi work, choice of career, and information to help them lead a better life.

We hereby wish to appeal for the assistance of volunteers in varying capacities, so we can achieve this lofty dream.

We indeed covet your support.           You may please reach us on:

What is LIFE without LOVE???

Come to think of it , there’s always someone out there somewhere hurting, it may be physically or  emotionally… Beloved, let’s give love to someone daily… it could be a kind smile to an angry face, a word of encouragement to an unhappy sister, a financial aid to a needy person, an information to help that girl child improve on her SELF ESTEEM taking the gospel to someone you know needs it, a helping hand to an old woman, a shoulder to cry on to the broken hearted, a hand to hold in prayer for the sick person.. In whatever form it comes,.. Let’s  be that HAND of JESUS this week to touch and transform lives.

Loads of Love…
