Despite the headway we’ve made in trying to accommodate the needs of disabled persons in the world so that they too can have a place in the community and enjoy many of the same opportunities as others with no physical or mental handicap, there is still a general belief that the lives of these disabled people are devoid of much happiness or pleasure. Why else would roughly 90% of parents choose to kill their unborn children who are prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome?
The truth is that, in the midst of the many hardships that come with disease and disability, there is still plenty of opportunity to really enjoy life. You just have to be willing to see it.
