Who am I?

c2-58

I am Corinne, a 40+ year old woman living in the luxury, safety, security and beauty of Canada’s west coast.

I am a mom to an amazing, adventurous, zany and artistic 16 year old daughter named Jessica.

I am also mom to Cody, a loving, sensitive, brave and resilient 12 year old boy who was born completely blind and also is autistic and non verbal.

I have a government which supports and enables me to care for, love and nurture both my children.

I have a heart which has been opened wide to the plight of the disabled children living in institutions.

I have to do something.

I will share Cody’s story as a means to encourage and inspire at-home care of the disabled.

I will share Cody’s story as a means to advocate for government support and financial aid to families of children with disabilities.

I will share Cody’s story as a means to advocate for the closing of the doors of institutions.
