“Sue's article on the Special Olympics skating team was incredible! She showed natural acceptance and inclusion without using the word or pushing for it!! Sue was very sensitive to our children's needs yet showcased how they are more alike than different! I cried and smiled at the same time. The BEST article I have ever read by far on the topic of special needs!!
