As you know every now and then there's a little lapse in the special needs spotlight--no worries we'll be back next week with a great one!--but in the meantime I usually try to find a suitable substitution, especially something in the world of special needs. I remember coming across this video last summer when I was googling all things Olympic and came across this amazing story of former Olympic athlete Dominique Moceanu. This is really a mind-blowing story, one of those truth-is-stranger-than-fiction situations. I was so overcome with emotion when I first watched this clip, and you'll see why. You'll also see why I love the ending of this story and completely relate to the 'moral' shared. Enjoy! (And maybe grab some kleenix.)
Have a great weekend and please, if you or someone you know would like to be a part of the special needs spotlight please email me at thislittlemiggy at gmail dot com.
Hugs, not drugs!
(Is that a good Friday closing?)
