Special Exposure Wednesday

5 Minutes for Special Needs

This photo comes from the NDSC Convention (more to come on that later!)

The story behind the photo: As we were going in to the restroom we passed this young lady. She commented to Kayla on how cute she was. I said, "Say thank you Kayla." The young lady asked, "Is her name Kayla?" I responded, "Yes." She then asked, "Spelled K-a-y-l-a?" I replied 'yes' again. Then she lifted up her name badge and said "That's my name too!" So we had to take a picture together!



I wish I had more time to talk to this Kayla, but my Kayla had to go!

When I look at this picture it's like getting a glimpse of the future. I can see my Kayla in this young lady - as a young adult and a self-advocate attending the NDSC convention. And I see that possibilities are endless...

I can see what you mean. I'm sure that older Kayla looked very much like your Kayla in her younger years. Kind of a neat window, eh?

I hope that all of you are having great fun!

How very cool! I bet Kayla thought that was pretty neat too. Glad you all had such a fun time! :)

Amazing when you get a glimpse of the teenager within. No surprise... Looks like your future/her future is a bright one. Looking forward to hearing more about the conference.

Very cool. I'm going to assume that you had a good time. I'm glad. I think the convention is a great idea.

Beautiful. I always love talking to self-advocates (in those rare instances that I get the chance). It's always so inspirational, and I love the little glimpse into the future.

Lacey said...

What a great "chance" meeting.
