Two years ago this week, I published A Special Mother is Born to offer hope to parents of special needs children. So many wonderful families have crossed my path since that day, I am very grateful!
I also told the story of how Christina helped me to fulfill my lifelong dream of becoming a writer in the book Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Writers. This man from the Middle East wrote me a lovely email and he gave me permission to share it with you.
What a beautiful story you have written, Leticia. My heart ached and filled with deep sadness Christine's diagnosis of Down Syndrome and how the disease fueled your persistence and determination to become a writer despite all the discouraging words. The story teaches us an invaluable lesson on achieving our goals and fulfilling our dreams: Whatever we dream, we have to always focus and concentrate on it. If we dreamed to soar very high with eagles, we don't have to waste our time swimming with ducks in the pool.
You are most welcome to share my words with your friends. At least, they should know what other people around the world say about you and your writing. You are a very talented writer indeed and your writing style is beautiful beyond the words to say.Have a blessed weekend,
