My friend Elizabeth Aquino of the blog "A Moon, Worn as if it Had Been a Shell" invited her readers to take part in a video she was making.
Elizabeth is the mother of Sophie, Henry and Oliver, wife of Michael, and an elegant writer, an activist and pastry chef. Feeling intimidated yet? But don't be - she is also one of the warmest, most supportive, empathetic, sharing and inclusive persons I've met in the blogisphere. Having a full life of her own, Elizabeth still takes the time and makes regular efforts to care in meaningful ways about the lives of others. Hence her participation in the Hopeful Parents community, and the video.
The video's participants are parents of children who have disabilities, and the topic is,
What would you tell yourself, if you could go back to the day of your child's diagnosis?
I invite you to watch, and let me know what you think when you see the messages. Here is the link: Elizabeth's VIDEO .
Thank you, Elizabeth, for asking such a good (and deep) question, for listening to the responses, and for sharing them with the world.
