Yet another example where those who say it can't be done need to stay out of the way of those doing it. Some of the most determined people I've known are those with "disabilities". Don't ever count them out. Were it not for those challenges these strong personalities might rule the world.
Not a lot more to that story, but still good to have two sides included on any story. I think the dad's quote was hopeful. " I'll hold out the possibility in the future that there will be the possibility of a connection. 'The door will always be open. For that to happen she will need to fully accept Leo and take on her responsibilities as a mother."
I am always amazed at the connections - dis-connections between familial , or "loved ones" in our world , you see it day to day , as an keen observer of human nature I see it in all the 'categories' of relationships , favorite child , step- children , illegitimate children , in even the simplest day to day "normalcy " of almost all cultures . You can see these same emotional manifestations right next to you everywhere . I hate you , I love you? No surprises here .
