Boo Boo meets the Minister

You're never too young to schmooze up to the power brokers in life.

Here is Boo Boo, snapped during a recent meeting with Christine Keneally, NSW Minister for Ageing and Disability Services.

We met her this week at a book launch in town (it was fun, Mamma took me on the train!). It's a book written by the Association for Children with a Disability NSW. The book is the first-ever guide book to disability services in NSW, and very appropriately called "Through the Maze" and will shortly be available (in pdf) on the ASD NSW website).

See that look on Boo Boo's face? It says: "Yes, I'm incredibly cute. But like many of my friends, I need some decent services and equipment. Whaddaya think Minister. Can you help to sort out the dire mess that is disability services in our state?"

And then she puts her head on the Minister's shoulders and adds: "Don't worry, my Mamma will write you a letter soon to explain some of the issues we face and you could help us with".

Proficiat Heike voor je moed en doorzettingsvermogen verdien je zeker een pluim. Je ziet er nog steeds uit als jaren geleden. Je kindjes zien er om ter schattigst uit.
