"The more I read and the more I talked to other parents of children with disabilities and normal children, the more I found that feelings and emotions about children are very much the same in all families. The accident of illness or disability serves only to intensify feelings and emotions, not to change them." Judith Weatherly "Pride that you express to others is ego. Pride that you express silently to yourself is real pride." "If you fall, fall on your back. If you can look up, you can get up." "Males understand power by doing powerful things. Females just understand power." "People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you figure out which is which, you know exactly what to do."
