Mother, Author and Activist for the disabled in a wholesome society
'Retarded' is how my first passport labelled me. Now it is 'disabled.' Which describes me more accurately?
My hope is to help society to start to understand that I do not want them to apologise for my disability, or look away embarrassingly when I am around. I am who I am and will be the best I can. No pity. No bad treatment. No dehumanising. Is that too much to expect from an intelligent and civilised western society? Another of my dreams is that this book will help my son to ignore society's pressures and start to feel comfortable with his mother. Read on and tell me if I am expecting too much.
