Sun-Beams is a collection of links to stories, articles, photos, or videos I have come across that I believe will inspire, inform, or encourage you, as well as my favorite photo posted on my other blog, Violet Film, from the past week.

Glee’s Lauren Potter on World Down Syndrome Day and Bullying – Lauren Potter has probably done more to advance people’s conceptions of individuals with Down syndrome than anyone since Chris Burke of “Life Goes On”

Artist born with Down Syndrome exhibits her work – And sells items – bonus! If you’re in the Palm Beaches area, be sure to check her out.

Banar is Down syndrome hero – Burden to society, my foot. This young man is contributing more to society than many typical people.

Two teachers accused of verbally abusing student with cerebral palsy – Sadly, this story is likely played out in many schools across the country. This one happened in my state.

Remembering Patrick Hubbard – And as a salve for reading the last link, a touching semi-local tribute to a man with spina bifida by a well-known sports writer in my state.

Photo of the Week:


If you enjoyed this post, download my FREE eBook, There's Sunshine Behind the Cloudsa resource for special needs parents. There’s Sunshine Behind the Clouds: Surviving the Early Years as a Special Needs Mom is for every mother of a child with special needs who is at the beginning of the journey, struggling to gain her footing on ever-shifting sands. It focuses on how to not only survive the emotional roller coaster of special needs parenting, but enjoy the ride.
