Please share something about yourself, your work, and what draws you to the Inclusion Network online community.
I'm a mother of Paul, now 27 years of age, who was diagnosed with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex at the age of 10 months. This resulted in a difficult seizure disorder, intellectual disability and medical challenges.
Paul is now living in his own apartment and taking the bus to and from his part time job. My book about our journey, 'What Time is the 9:20 bus?' chronicles how Paul and I achieved a meaningful life, will be published soon.
What part of the world do you live in? Would you share a bit about your neighbourhood?
Peterborough Ontario Canada - a wonderful part of the world, close to lakes, biking trails, forests, and not far from Toronto.
What would you like to contribute to this community? What would you like to receive?
I would like this community to know what is possible when individuals with disabilities receive the support they require and the opportunities they deserve. Paul is a role model in this regard.
I hope to receive ideas on how my book can reach as wide an audience as possible.

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for the full details.
