This is Oscar Pistorius of South Africa. The little girl is five year old Ellie. As the story goes, she raced Oscar four times and won each time. I know controversy surrounded Pistorius's participation in the Olympics. I did not know much about his story, but I believed he should have the opportunity. After hearing him speak after one of the semi-finals and then seeing this, I am confident in my support.
With technology changing and opportunities being made possible, why not be inclusive?
These stories describe our journey with Ben, our oldest son. Ben is a sweet and energetic redhead, born with a rare genetic mutation. My husband, Ryan, and I try to keep up with Ben and his two younger brothers. I intend to shed insight into raising a child with disabilities and pass on the wisdom we’ve earned over the past two decades.
