“Often people ask, "How can you say you're blessed to have a son with Down syndrome?" My outlook on life has forever changed. I see my own challenges differently. He's always showing me that life is so much bigger than self.”
Yvonne Pierre, The Day My Soul Cried: A Memoir

Yvonne Pierre
“I Have a Dream... someday my son, Zyon and ALL individuals with disabilities will be seen as HUMAN beings.

I Have a Dream... someday the human & civil rights of individuals with disabilities are honored and they are treated as equals.

I Have a Dream... someday ALL parents who have children with disabilities see their child as a blessing and not a burden.

I Have a Dream... someday there will be more jobs and opportunities for individuals with disabilities.

I Have a Dream... someday there will be UNITY "within" the disabled community.

Craig Raine
“Begin with the soft smelted upturned heart-shaped mouth made for smiling a smile kept for kindness, tenderness, incapable of malice.

Am I going too fast for you?

The almond eyes see out through their sleepy epicanthic fold. Trusting and calm, if a flicker from slowness, a further flicker from stupidity.

Settled in slow-motion beauty, heart-breaking beauty.”
Craig Raine
