Ahhhhh Catherine! Thank you so much. That was wonderful. I really appreciate your candid answers about bullying and discrimination--even better I love that you're doing something about it! What a wonderful group to be a part of. (I wonder if there is something like this in the States?) It also made me smile to hear about your wonderful family--the love and support of a good family can move mountains. I admire you for your courage to live your life to the fullest, challenging yourself and achieving your goals. There are far too many people--disabilities or not--who live below their abilities. Finally, I really appreciate your parting thoughts.... You wouldn't change your condition, because it's such an integral part of who you are, but you also don't want to be defined by your disability either. I know I feel the same way for my daughter and I imagine many other special needs parents feel the same too. Thanks again Catherine! And good luck in your continued career pursuits.
If you or someone you know would like to participate in the special needs spotlight please email me, or have them email me directly, at thislittlemiggy at gmail dot com.
Have a great weekend!
