The DBSA pre Conference starts out with a bang Friday.  With an estimated 150 or more chapter leaders at the Hilton Miami Downtown hotel.  Allen Doederlein and Lucinda Jewell started off the day with reviewing the success of the DBSA has made over the past few years and what the future holds.

Chato Stewart and Joan Winifred at the DBSA 2013For me, Chato Stewart and Joan Winifred and family, we were able to have two tables set up to do something that has NEVER been done at any of the past 27 years in the DBSA conference history.  No, it was not having me set up to draw caricatures of the guests and peers at the conference…but you would be close.  Rather it was having 3 young girls ages 8,10 and 12 draw caricatures of the attendees.  Yes, Chato’s girls were drawing their little fannies off.  Every one they drew were happy and full of joy when they got their drawings.
