When one of my 17 grandchildren was born with a rare undiagnosed neurological disease, my priorities changed. My passion was not politics, but helping my handicapped grandson Braeden, now 7-years-old... Like all grandparents would say, all their grandchildren are the light of their lives, but a handicapped child is a pure delight.
There has been much debate about the usage of handicapped bathrooms. Some people feel like they should be used exclusively by handicapped individuals, and others say they are built for handicapped individuals, not reserved for them. I would like to offer my opinion and experience as a mother of a child with special needs.
