Who says miracles never happen? Here's the story of one family who was devestated when their daughter was diagnosed with autism right before her 2nd birthday. The doctor's advice to the parent- don't expect too much from her.
Jodi DiPiazza struggled as a young child with speech and behavior issues. Through intensive therapy she defied the doctor's expectations and not only made huge gains in her development, but also developed a profound love for music. Her talent led her to perform a duet with one of her favorite singers, Katy Perry.
Jodi is not unlike many others who are living with a disability. These individuals who were once predicted to be unsuccessful in life are showing society that their difference are something to be treasured. Life may be challenging for these children, but their strength and determination to succeed prove how strong they really are.
