Best of Luck. I am an artist as well, who has a diverse mix of young, seniors and disabled students.

I know you don't do this for the gratitude, but as a mother and a sibling of developmentally disabled people, we all thank you very much.

It is no surprsise that the writer of this piece mentions a student being drawn to you. Our special people are always drawn to love.
