That's true. Hopefully it's a sign that things are beginning to change there!

While they are trying to make it right - I really have a problem with the blogger who stated ""If there had been a group of people using wheelchairs, then we could have explained the Oceanarium's reluctance to let them in on a weekend … but a visit on a cleanup day is beyond understanding," noted a Russian blogger." 

Seriously?

Maybe they are really busy on the weekends? Doesn't excuse it either way though.

Why do I continue to be surprised by things like this?

Guess we're still waiting for a good article to come along. One where we can rejoice in fairness for Special needs kids!

I hate hearing stories like this, no matter where they're from. My daughter has never had to experience anything like this and I hope she never does. Right now her dwarfism is cute since she's so little, but I worry about when she gets older and people start to stare at her and tease her. I can't even imagine if people were as ignorant about her condition as they are with autism.

I think it's one of all of our biggest fears. Our children being misunderstood.

I couldn't agree more. It's definitely one of my biggest fears.
