The Power of Siblings

We able bodied people often ignorantly fail to recognize the strength and power of people with disabilities.  This blog is dedicated to changing that misconception.

The story of Gold Medalist Alex Bilodeau and his brother is a tremendous example of how living with a sibling with a disability results in triumph.  Warning, this video may tug at your heart.

I wrote about the enormous gifts that siblings with differences bring to a family in “What’s Important.” My hope is that someday, all families will celebrate these differences rather than grieve about the challenges.   Raising a child with special needs may seem daunting at first, but if there is support, it is the most meaningful adventure of a lifetime.
