In 2003 I was dating a woman with a daughter diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. This was an eye-opener for me as I had little, if any, exposure to anyone with a disability. I learned something of the difficulties this woman, her daughter and others diagnosed with disabilities faced. Some time later, I left my job and went into human and disabilities services.
Working in this field I've learned that people and society can do great things and "not so great things" (<----euphemism). One of the great things that our society did was passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). In short, the ADA civil rights type protections to people with disabilities.
I and other people want to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of tis important event (2015) and that is why I'm on here. Please read about my fundraiser event (<------Shameless Plug).
As for me, I'm married, I'm in school, I'm into Sci-Fi and Fantasy and I like being in the helping field. ;-)
