And from a personal view Glynda said she just wants to be able to, as a family, include Brady in everyday activities, knowing they will have no worries about a proper place for his changing needs.
She went on to say, “Ever since he outgrew the baby changing table, when we have been out and about trying to enjoy life, we have been forced to make a choice between changing him in the back of our vehicle, changing him on a blanket or pads on a public bathroom floor, leaving early to go home, or having to let him sit longer than we would like too without a change until we make it home, or choosing to stay home because of the struggle.”
I must say it is so easy to overlook the day to day struggle that goes with raising and caring for a special needs child. The next time you are held up in a line because of someone having to take extra time with their special needs child just remember how hard and sometimes frustrating is can be for them and the child.
Watch this short video and I think you will agree with me that no one should have to suffer this humiliation. Most of us as parents have no clue what it is like to be in public and have to go into a, many times, filthy public restroom and have to lay a special needs child down on a nasty floor to change them.
I believe there will be special rewards in heaven for people like Shane, Glynda and Paul. And for a young man like Shane to stand up and all but put his life on hold for his son is a real testimony to his parents. They instilled integrity and responsibility into him.
Someone recently said publically that BamaCarry members were the most giving people he had ever met. I agree. All three of these folks are BamaCarry members and have given up a large part of their lives to love and do all in their power to be there for Brady. I believe with Glynda leading the charge there will be changes coming in the future as she leads this group forward.
Yes, BamaCarry members are very special people and my life has been enriched just for getting to meet Brady and his family.
For more information in Alabama visit Glynda’s Facebook site Changing Spaces Alabama and let me encourage you to get involved. If nothing else let her and other parents know that you care and you will be praying for them.
