I want my son to grow up in a world that understands him and accepts him. I have a difficult struggle on my hands, but with my son at my side, I have the best motivation and inspiration I could ever wish for.
I have a lot of respect for parents who are strong enough to take this approach. Up until more recently than most people realize, the developely disabled population was not treated anywhere near as well as they are now. Their used to be 2 staff taking care of up to 80+ individuals at a time. Even now there are things that need to change, but with change there needs to be acceptance and.so many are unwilling to accept.
