I received a beautiful letter validating the very reason why I’ve been running this site, Beauty Ability, since 2003.
It came from the mother of a 17 year old girl who recently found my site. Having “up there” confidence and thinking you’re beautiful is never easy when you’re a teenager, let alone when you’re in a wheelchair.
I found you through my daughter Leanne. Leanne has Spina Bifida and uses a chair. We live in the country and she is the only person here that uses a chair. She has gone through all of her life with no true peers and now that she is 17 and watching the world go on around her it has been rough.
She has not been able to see any positive in her life for some time. Throughout each day I hear “I hate my life” more times than I can bear. Throughout her life I have worked to find opportunities to introduce her to the disability community, without success.
