Parenting with a Disability: Raising a Daughter with a Disability

I always tell people that I have the pleasure of having a mother with a disability. She taught me so much in how to be independent with a disability. There was never any second-guessing on me taking a chance on exploring my boundaries to be independent.

Women with Physical Disabilities & Body Image

Women with Physical Disabilities & Body Image

I am writing this article as a woman who has Cerebral Palsy and mainly uses a power wheelchair to travel around. I remember as a young girl (and even still today at times) feeling so inadequate looking at images of women in the media that didn't look like me.

But it is important to remember that every body is unique and beautiful.
