I will never understand what it is like to experience racism, but I do understand discrimination. Many that live with disabilities understand what it is like to experience discrimination. From searching for a job, getting life insurance, eating at a restaurant, and getting medical care, discrimination shows itself around every corner.

For the first time in History, the child has rights not the infertile couple. Blessed. No one is born perfect 💯 in my life I never found one but no child went without on my watch. One night I had a phone call from the Uniting Adoption Centre. We worked 24 /7. Please attend the Court. We have a child needing a name before he Dies.

A few tears. I gave birth by adoption that night. We all prayed my little boy would get through the night. 6 weeks later, I was allowed to see this fragile child baby aged four years—brain damaged, weighing only 3lb with tubs everywhere. This little bony skeleton lived. Amen. Today he has disabilities but no tag. He gained a degree in Environment with the Government. Anything is possible. 🤗
