Sun-Beams: Easter Sunday 2012 Edition

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.

Baby kangaroo forms amazing friendship with Down’s Syndrome teen – I’m not entirely sure what to think of this story. I think I like it…

Turning Wheelchairs Into Hot-Rods – You never know the impact that one person can have on the lives of many, without ever knowing it themselves.

Why So Many Babies Are Still Being Born With Down Syndrome– Maybe there’s reason to hope that people with Down syndrome won’t face wholesale extinction…

Albert Pujols: Angels’ man and machine – You guys know I can never resist a good piece on Albert Pujols!

Lenten Failure and Easter Triumph – Has nothing to do with disability, but it was what I needed to read after “failing Lent” this year in a big way.

Photo of the Week:

If you’ve been following the blog this week, you’ve seen this photo before. It was posted on Violet Film, as well, and it’s my favorite – even more so now than when I first took it last Monday afternoon.

    As a STL transplant I can vouch for the awesomeness that was the Pujols foundation – new moms’ brunch, day at Grant’s Farm – we were very fortunate & my husband is especially heartbroken over the baseball bit. My grandmother, though, is in LA and has taken to sending me news clippings of his doings. Small world.
