Front: A journey begins with the first step
Inside: Step up to the possibilities!
Back: The greeting card you are holding exists because people like you helped me achieve my goals. I was motivated to work hard at whatever I did and never give up. I learned to believe in myself and others. Through my cards, I want to help families recognize how many opportunities and great moments they will experience having a person with a developmental disability in their life. Living my life has its challenges, but it’s also a lot of fun! That’s why my company Inspires2aspire. – Todd
Among all the articles Todd’s father read in the beginning of their journey, he found one sentence, told himself this was all they needed to know and stuck it up on the wall. It read, “The opportunities and family support given to a person with Down Syndrome can greatly enhance their abilities.” They wish there had been a role model for them when Todd was born in 1982.
It’s always hard to let your children spread their wings and fly, but even more so when they have a developmental disability. Taking that first step requires preparation, followed by a very deep breath before letting go. There have been many times in Todd’s life when they had to let go, if they hadn’t, they would have missed the opportunities for him to grow into the independent man he is today.
