However, the organization needs a little help from the community to make the family's dream come true.

She can't stand or walk but is able to use her right arm to a degree. Calling her son "self-sufficient" and "a pretty solid guy," Bodhi nonetheless "falls apart" on Amy regularly, she said — a phenomenon which began around his second birthday. And at the end she said, “What’s really cool is, you could cast a doctor with a disability.” Rodrigo got really nervous.

The vast majority of my friends in the circles that I run in send their kids to private schools. Right now, Charlotte’s terrible with her sense of time. Amy said that during one recent morning, she was running late while trying to get her 7 ½-year-old daughter Charlotte Tucker to school.

They are working with their department of education to better intergrate children with disabilities—and I mentioned CHIME. I was like, “It’s okay!”.
