I found this photograph on eBay. This dear mother motivates me to always maximize every opportunity the 21st century has to offer.
Throughout history, parents of disabled children lived isolated and uninformed lives, perpetually at the mercy of doctors, hospitals, therapists, bureaucrats, and these days seemingly infinite, well-intentioned bureaucracies.

But now things have changed, thanks to the Internet.
Now parents have unprecedented access to information. And we have the power to re-distribute that information.
