My daughter's disability was entirely my fault.
All the things that a mom should do? I failed at the most important one, to keep my child safe. Beth was fourteen years old when I fell asleep at the wheel. She watched the car flip three times and land upside-down in a dark Ohio field.
Unable to move on a bed of glass, Beth reassured me, saying, "I'm okay. Everything will be okay."
And it was. Eventually. In time.
I wish I had known that at the beginning. Despite my life's work with disability, I could only see everything that she had lost. Because of me.
At first, I thought that Beth would be limited by her spinal cord injury. Today, I am happy to have been wrong.
This new blog will share the highlights of an amazing journey. I hope you will come along!
