Did anyone watch Oprah’s show on Autism with Jenny’ McCarthy and Holly Robinson-Pete? I’ve been wanting Oprah to talk about this subject for quite a while and assumed she had but I missed the show. I’ve written in about it a couple times.
I was really impressed by the show and the “mom-power” attitude it had. I was relieved to know that I’ve done everything with Davis that had been suggested. (Whew!) I felt like she explained how it feels to be a mother with a special needs child very well and the strain it has on yourself and on your marriage. “You Go Ladies!” And thanks for opening up peoples minds and hearts on this rapidly increasing issue.
My hope is that people as a whole will look at these little guys with compasion and understanding (unlike my school district), and love them for their special talents and for the special little people they are.
