This presentation was delivered by Meg Sweeney at Family Advocacy's 2007 Odyssey Conference.

When her daughter Joscelyn was born, Meg Sweeney realised that Joscelyn would need help to achieve a sense of personal security and acceptance in the local community. Relationships became the focus of all decision making from that time on as Meg knew that the more people her daughter met, the more opportunity there would be for relationships to form. Meg writes that it is the many layers of relationships, developed at the local public school, in their neighbourhood and through involvement in ordinary sporting activities that now provide Joscelyn with the sense of personal security and belonging that Meg hoped for when Joscelyn was a baby.
