I bought this 1975 Mini Cooper many many years ago with one thing in mind, there is life beyond a hardship such as a disability. I was born in the early 60’s and I heard many words full of hopelessness because of my Cerebral Palsy. My hopes are to use this tiny little car to deliver some words of hope to that Mom or Dad who is faced with raising a child with a disability. I’m hoping to shed some light on what they might be facing. I know my parents struggled as they raised me, not knowing what would become of my life.
This tiny little orange car surely will capture eyes throughout the community – much like having a disabled body – looks for days. Most people have never seen a Mini this old much like not ever meeting a person with a disability.
