Past MFDSN activities have been great resources for families and included a panel discussion with some of Indianapolis’ leading health care practitioners, backyard picnics, family-to-family support for challenges that arise during your loved ones life span (IEPs, medical appointments, stress, puberty, etc), and a holiday adopt-a -family party.

We meet the 4th Sunday of every month at the DSI office ( 708 E. Michigan St. Indianapolis, IN 46202)



Serving Others This Holiday Season!

This year, the MFDSN/DSI plans to serve a DSI family in need. The adopted family of five has provided DSI with a list of clothing items that would greatly help them. We would also like to gift the family other items such as games, toys, etc.  In order to make this happen we need lots of help!  We are asking DSI families to donate the requested clothing and age appropriate toys, games, or other gift items.  Some suggestions for other gifts are coloring books, crayons, legos, books, play dough, manicure sets, character throw blankets, hair accessories, lotion sets and fashion jewelry.  Gift cards to Target, Walmart or JC Penny’s are also great ideas as we can use to go out and buy the remaining items.

Sizes and ages are the following: 

Daughter #1 is 15years old, wears XL women's, 16 pants size, and size 81/2 shoes.

Daughter #2 is 13yrs old, wears Medium Jr's, 8-10 pants size, and size 91/2 shoes.

Daughter #3 is 8 years old, wears S-M kids, 8 pants (kids), and size 2 in kids shoes.

Daughter #4 is 4 years old, wears S/M in toddler's, 5T pant size, and 10 or 11 in kids shoes. 

Mother is 33 years old, wears size 2X in womens, 20-22 pants size, and 91/2 or 10 in women's shoes.
