    (1). Being the mother of a child with a disability, what advice do you have for new mom's who are facing similar circumstances?
    (2). How has dealing with John's disability strengthened your family, Chris and Makyal?
    (3).  Was there ever a time when you blamed yourself for John's condition? If so, why did you feel you that way?
