Good evening everyone,
This is wonderful news. Are you guys going to seek passage of
legislation similar to that adopted in Maryland that protects blind parents
from having their children taken away simply due to their blindness? Just
thought I would put a bug in your ears in light of this case.
Congratulations to everyone in our Missouri Affiliate. You're one step down
the road to preventing such incidents in the future.
