A truly inspiring story of not providing inspiration

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.
