This past week, I saw that CNN was looking for people who had parents with disabilites, or WERE parents with disabilities to submit iReports on what life was like for them.
Now, I’ve taken many journalism classes, and am capable of putting together a pretty good video, but I knew that if I waited until I had time to do a pretty good one, it would never get done. So, I took about two hours Sunday morning and put together a sloppy little video of me changing and feeding Ethan. A couple days later, my face was splashed across CNN’s homepage.
I was so excited that I was shaking half the morning, and through the two interviews with local news stations later that day. Reading the responses to the CNN report made my day, to say the least.
Maybe the years of feeling directionless up to this point actually had a purpose?
