Before you read the entry below, I wanted to give you a little background. Most all of you know Stephen now, and have grown to love him. I want to thank each and every one of you for every single kind comment you make regarding my son. I read each of them to him, and he smiles. This is my Journal, but I am Stephen's voice. With the awards going on this week, I've noticed, I'm seeing a lot of new readers.. So, I'm going to use this opportunity to be the voice in representing all families like ourselves in your communities. There is a Stephen in every town in America. You may be unaware, because they do not get out much. Seek and ye shall find. I posted the following Plea on my website and sent it to churches in my own community, and much to my surprise, there are people who care! People like each of you. I got tons of mail, and E-mail from coast to coast, and Canada! We can all do something!
Ps: as a side note, if you are a non-churchgoer, you can still help by contacting your local programs such as: ARC (association for retarded citizens) United Way, UCP (United Cerebral Palsy) just to name a few.
