Proudly Supporting all Military Families with a Special Needs Dependent
Alison is a Navy wife of over nine years. The Dockins family is currently stationed at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida. Alison and her husband have two little girls. Her favorite part of being a military spouse is having the abililty to see the country and travel to different regions, while meeting friends good enough to consider them family. “We are a go go go kinda family, we like to get out and see new things and explore new places.”
When asked what advice she would give herself before becoming a military spouse, Alison said “The military can tell us where to live and when to move there, but no one can make us be happy or miserable, that is up to us to decide!”
Alison has been involved in numerous groups and is a powerful activist for Williams Syndrome. She credits her husband for her ability to be a wonderful advocate. “I think the thing that makes me be a good advocate for my children is having a husband who is in it 50/50 in our parenting roles. He may not be able to be at all the meetings and appointments, but all decisions made are agreed upon, and in the case I can’t discuss it with him first, I know he trusts me to make the best decision for our family.” Allison said.
The Military Special Needs Network honors and salutes Alison Dockins as the Military Spouse of the Day! We thank you for being such a wonderful military spouse and an amazing advocate for special needs!
