“I was working with Raelyn with social situation flashcards and got to one with a picture of a girl in a wheelchair. It said “what should you do when you see someone who is different from you?” Her answer seriously brought tears to my eyes. She said, “can I have a turn in your wheelchair?”
THIS is what Sisu is all about. It has taught Raelyn to embrace people of all different abilities, races, and personalities. She doesn’t see her classmates as “the girl in the wheelchair” or “the boy who gets his lunch through a tube.” She just sees them as friends. And that is so incredibly special. I have never been so proud as a mom.
Sisu has literally changed our lives in so many ways, and the energy of all the staff is contagious. Thank you for letting me be a part of it. “
