A Holiday Gift
The gift I will desire for the rest of my life and never obtain.
The gift that would add joy to faces all over the globe.
Christmas is right around the corner.
Each year, I am asked what I would like or what I want this holiday season.
And every year, I have no idea what I want.
That someone would be able to purchase at a local store.
Or even just order online for me.
I only have one thing I desire and it breaks my heart that I may never receive it.
The thing many moms just like me desire is this exact same gift.
There are moms that are like me that live in different states, provinces, villages and towns that hope with all their heart to gain this gift in their lifetime.
Sad reality is it can't be bought, purchased or gifted.
Maybe you will understand more about this gift if I tell you about myself.
I am a mother who is raising 3 remarkable children.
2 of my children are disabled and have extreme needs to have the best quality of life.
Each day passes and I find myself looking at a world that was not made for them.
This world was not built for them to thrive and live their best life.
That is hard as a mother to have children in a world that is not fully inclusive.
There is a gift that not only me, but many mothers around the globe are wanting to receive this holiday season.
It is a gift for our family to live in a world that includes our kids.
Inclusion is what the world needs.
Teach your kids to love our kids.
The gift I will desire for the rest of my life and never obtain is what will change the world for my family and those around the globe.
