thought provoking article to read. The article they forwarded me to was about whether having specialized dolls like dolls with down syndrome and maybe a doll with no hair for those going through chemotherapy are helping the children or making them feel even more outside the mainstream. Have a look: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/health/article4206469.ece
At first I thought the comment on the blog was about singling Nathanael out because he's "special" and how that doesn't help him with inclusion into the mainstream. I always felt it was just a great way to share with others out there and also for those who contemplate whether or not to keep their "disabled" child...showing them how normal, challenging, wonderful and fun it is.
It was a link to something very thought-provoking..like I said and it reminded me that those from the outside looking in may have a very different perception than those "in the trenches".
