Sun-Beams: March 17, 2013

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.

The ADA and Declining Down Syndrome Birthrates – A quick read that parallels (in part) my piece of the fed ruling on sports

Why blame Mom? – As someone who’s been told by nasty commenters that I should stop having kids because I’m “not good at it,” this piece hit home in a big way.

Why I Love My Cerebral Palsy – Tip of the hat to my blogging friend Shasta for this great interview with Nick Ryan

Before You Put Too Much Stock in Your Child’s Test Scores, Read This – I’m a longtime reader of Life Your Way, but this piece (particularly #2) didn’t sit well with me – enough so that I decided to leave a long comment. Let me know your thoughts.

Pope Francis and the guide dog – There’s also a story floating around about him caring for a Jesuit brother who is disabled.

Photo of the Week:

Nope, that’s not Sarah Kate crossing home plate, but it is one of her many RBIs so far this season. I love that you can see her running toward first, obviously about to be thrown out, but that her RBI is scoring.
