My Inspiration!

by Karla Barnett on September 2, 2011

My little guy, Jonathan Michael, is my awesome source of inspiration.  He has taught me to appreciate the smallest accomplishment,  improve  my patience and gave me hope.    Life before Jonathan was filled with judgement, very little compassion for others and a lack of faith.   Watching him thrive on a daily basis brings tears to my eyes and joy in my heart.  He makes me a better person!!!Never let health care professionals or teachers place your child in a box because they will always prove them wrong.   As parents of special needs children, we need to raise our level of expectations and continually challenge our angels because they will shock you!  We need to stop avoiding mainstream activities because we think they will melt down and we will be judged by others.   I was guilty of restricting Jonathan’s activities as I was worried about the judgement.  Toddlers have meltdowns, some more than others, the goal is to manage the situation and not run from it!Always keep in mind, special needs children deserve every opportunity a neurotypical kid experiences.    Don’t let others hinder you from allowing your children to enjoy everything life has to offer!

Karla, this is an awesome website. Excellent writing and expression of emotion. God is leading you girl. Hold on for the ride of your life. I feel this is going to bring a lot of attention to you and your faith. You are such an inspiration to me. I really didn’t know how serious your son’s challenges were. God has intrusted you and Rasheem with his little life because you are the choosen ones. I can’t wait to dig into this website. It’s funny you started this website. I started writing a book called and then there were 3. It’s about my life with Nicole, who is now 30 and has three girls who are adopted, and then add my two little ones. It’s all based on faith, trust, and being rescued by Jesus Christ. I have the first chapter written, but I’m not sure if I’m going to change it or what. I’m just praying about how to write it. I’ll keep in touch with you. God has given me His eyes and I’m seeing life in a whole different light. In Him, Terri

Accurately, they’re over-the-calf stockings. Socks baelry cover the ankle. Over the calf is often written as OTC.Out here in the hinterlands, JCPenney has a good selection.I’ve worn them for 51 years now; when I cross my legs, you see stocking, not skin & socks.But, to each their own!

And once you learn about the law of attraction, you will
begin to see why this is so. This article will discuss the two types of whole body vibration machines.
Though advance technology is more difficult to understand
but you can make it so easy by study a lot about the methods and techniques which is basic rule of using “photo retouching”.
