We are All Disabled in Some Way
No individual is perfect or invulnerable
In 2000, I wrote a story inspired by my friend Julie M. Jones, who was born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). I didn’t have to be told that I should ask Julie to read the story before I sent it for publication. If she had suggested any changes in how I portrayed the main character for reasons of accuracy and respect, I would have made them.
