Love and Disability - A V-Day Appropriate Story!

Washington Post

Take a moment to read this amazingly inspirational story about two beautiful people in love who happen to have intellectual disabilities. Oh the tears of happiness...

“There is a bias in our society that is unfounded — that just because you have Asperger’s syndrome or you have Down syndrome that you automatically cannot sustain a relationship. But that’s just not true.”

From the Washington Post: When Bill met Shelley: No disability could keep them apart

(And by the way - I love that this story was published by the Washington Post and not just an internet site about disabilities! All people need to hear that those with disabilities are both worthy and capable of love!)
