The invisible mom... are you to blame for her isolation?

I just read an article on the Huffington Post called, The Invisible Mom, about a mother with a 10-year old son with Down Syndrome. This article is not about her son, or his disability, it is about the way adults treat her, and ultimately her son.  It broke my heart and opened my eyes to something I have been guilty of at times. Sadly, I did not realize just how painful my actions, or really lack there of could have been...

I was so moved that I want to share it with you in hopes that you too will learn about the isolation that a parent of a child with special needs endures, and more importantly, hopefully join me in being the change these parents and their children deserve-kindness and consideration.
