We, Lioness mothers, are parents with special needs children. Our special children may have a long-term illness, a disability or some other special need with or without a formal diagnosis.

We, Lioness mothers, want to provide concrete help and support to other parents, mothers and fathers, with special needs children.

Even today, somewhere in the world parents become special parents when a special need child is born or a child is disabled. A special life requires a special strength. Sometimes this strength may be loss. That is why we founded Leijonaemot – the parents own safety net.

We have peer support groups throughout Finland in which parents can meet other parents. We also have discussion groups on the Internet in which you can exchange thoughts with other parents in the midst of everyday life. We also organize empowering peer events where you can meet other parents and rediscover your inner strength. Welcome all Special mothers and fathers! Join us!
