Ask any child what they want to be when they grow up and I'm willing to bet that a good portion of them will say that they want to be president of the United States. Is that a goal that is out of reach for somebody who has been given a diagonosis ? Well, three of our founding fathers have proven that it is possible. Thomas Jefferson, Dwight D. Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy have all been said to have learning disabilities, yet they have become three of the most powerful and influential people in history. Our dreams are never farther than our desire to reach them and we need to start looking at our ABILITIES. Capabilities and Possibilities.... not Disabilities.
I have the privilege of being able to shape the minds and lives of children who are battling disabilities. It can be very trying at times, but more often than not it is very rewarding. As a mother of a child with a disability, I know the struggles that they go through on a daily basis. This allows me to have a little more compassion for the people that I work with.
