A couple weeks ago I wrote about Stories of Inspiration, which I simply do not find inspiring. There is an expectation that anyone with a disability of any sort is supposed to rise above any setbacks and accomplish great feats.
There are many ways to look at these stories and expectations. I was so touched by this woman’s story of her daughter that I just had to share it. Her daughter is lucky to have such an amazing mother. I also love her attitude. She admits to falling prey to these same expectations, as so many of us have. Then she explains how her understanding evolved. I can’t possibly explain it as eloquently as she has, so please take a moment to read her story.
