Cerebral Palsy Inspiration: A Sweet Angel

The other day I ran across the sweetest youtube video and wanted to share it with you. But before I could, I felt like I should get the approval of Mary, the mother of Shannon. ┬áNot only did she give me the nod but she also sent me a short message for me to post along with the movie. ┬áThose of us with a special need’s child will certainly relate.

“I am honored and humbled that God granted me the absolute privelege of being chosen to be the mother and caregiver of my beautiful daughter, Shannon. She is simply the best person I have ever known. I believe that our special children are angels who have been sent to the world to educate and enlighten those around us. They show us through their struggles and suffering how to be better human beings. Some rise to the occasion and others do not. It is difficult and it is suffering. While it took me many years to come to this–I am grateful for everything that Shannon is. May God give strength to all loved ones and caregivers of special children. It is a hard road, but a deeply meaningful one.”
by Mary E. Parsons, blessed mother of Shannon

Warning: Get the kleenex out!
