New Year Resolutions and Childhood Disabilities
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art174442.asp

I enjoyed finding this quotation recently, and although it was written for an earlier new year, it made me smile.

"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself." - Neil Gaiman

Here's the latest article from the Children with Special Needs site at BellaOnline.com.
