Our guests are education attorneys Eileen Libutti and Jennifer Frankola of Lewis Johs Avallone Aviles, LLP who are experts in family advocacy.

Elizabeth shares what is in it for all individuals when they open up to looking at the abilities over the disabilities. It will be the first of a series as she introduces her Platform for the Todays American Woman, and continues over the next month to help us understand what is really in it for everyone when we open our minds, hearts, and attitudes to looking at individuals from the ability stand point rather than the disabiity stand point.
The joy of being a Parent is one you can not put a price tag on. Some people choose to be child-free but many look forward to carrying their own babies, rolling on the floor with them, doing the small things, big ones and everything between.

When a family has a child with a developmental disability, their future is often uncertain. Individuals with developmental disabilities are often somewhat, if not completely, dependent on their caretakers. Group homes are often an option for families to consider as their child continues to grow and parents become older and less able to care for their child.

10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

We are continuing in our Mother's Day series. Tonight, my Aunt Wanda Humphrey will be talking with us about Mothering children who you did not birth from your loins. Sometimes our birth mother is not fit, ready, or able to take care of us, but God always has a ram in the bush. He always gives us a Mother to pour into our lives. A mother to love and nurture us, build us up and make us strong. Someone to teach us biblical principles and the way of the Lord. My aunt did this for two children that she did not biologically conceive, but she Mothered them from the time they were young children and she still is. She treated them the same as she did her own son. They were just as much a part of our family as her own son and I love that about my Aunt and our family. Tune in to listen to my Aunt tell her story.
