HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE YOU WERE NOT WANTED OR APPRECIATED?
Now, imagine that feeling all the time. Children with special needs are not given value in countries like China. They are not wanted or appreciated, ever. Like Kirsti recounted, people with special needs are unwanted and unlucky in China. If you have seen the documentary or seen any of the videos circulating around about the amazing things people with special needs are accomplishing, you will know, that people with special needs have value and a purpose.
Throughout this series, we will see what it is really like for a child to be born with special needs in China.
I would also like to remind you that the discrimination that people with special needs face is not limited to the boarders of China.
People all over the world including here at home, where we claim to accept everyone, face the same discrimination every day.
