Front: Success. Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time. – Thomas Edison
Inside: Don’t give up! We know you can do it.
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.
If you’ve ever learned to water ski, you know that it is very rare to succeed on your first try. The same was true for Todd, but the smile on his face when he succeeded made the extra effort worthwhile. They’ve learned NOT to assume that something can’t be accomplished and they suggest the same attitude for you.
