A Parent's View

"Just as there are many different colors and shades which comprise a rainbow, so are there many different children and families which comprise our world.

Each color, like each child, radiates its own special intensity and light. However, it is only with the contribution of all the colors that the magic of the rainbow is born.

To those families who have just begun or those who have already weathered the storm of challenges a special needs child offers, the rainbow provides a ray of hope and the chance of discovering the valuable treasure of its end… Our Children."
