Deanne,
thank you for finding us!
A part of what BIRRDsong aims to do, I would say, is to recognize we all have special talents and to help others find what those are so they can be both seen and used! We also appreciate any additional support, offerings, or stories so if you feel inclined to contribute please do.


We are a support group that meets in NW Portland the first Saturday of every month (This Saturday!) at Good Samiritan Hospital from 9:30-11:00 am and you are certainly welcome to join us!

Otherwise please feel free to chat with any of us here and if you have any questions or support you could use don't be afraid to ask.
Thank you again for finding and contacting us!

I don't have any special talents, but I would love to chat and give support when I can.  Please give me a chance.

We meet in NW Portland, OR. We don't have online meetings yet, Mary. Do you think we should hold some online in the future? Would that be helpful?
