A baby and a disabled person are the same.
A baby depends on people for warmth, food, direction and comfort.
Disabled people need the same.

When you are a baby your droolling and helplessness are cute.

When you're disabled, older and needy, you are thought of as a pain.

Older or younger,
Healthy or unhealthy,

We alll want the same ACCEPTANCE AND LOVE
