He now inspires hundreds of thousands of people all around the world to not give up the fight. You got this Lota!

“Am I cut out for this?” Parenting a child with Down Syndrome.

As a parent, we know we can never wake up fully prepared for what the day will bring with our children.

A lot of parents, with a down syndrome diagnosis, have doubts and concerns about the future.

How wonderful to have communities and groups like the Utah Down Syndrome Foundation, who give hope to parents that they can do this and have joy in the process.

“We are so impressed with these children and parents that are so full of life. They have such stamina for life and courage to experience what they experience. “

You can do this and you don’t have to do it alone!

From Prostitution to Forgiveness

0

“How could I forgive myself for all of these things I had done.”

The pathway of making decisions can take us down many paths.
What do you do when you can see all the damage you have done to your life? How do you change your life story to one of happiness, forgiveness and recovery?
What is forgiveness? What does forgiveness mean for someone who’s life story led to drugs and prostitution.

This is why we do what we do. Capturing stories that belong to people like you and us. The stories of failure, trials, wrong decisions but the triumph of making changes, finding hope and turning darkness into light.

These stories stir something inside us for good.

We hope you will watch this story to the end as she answers the questions above and gives hope to those who are in a place of having to forgive themselves or someone else.

Send us a message if you, your company or organization have a story to share!
We would love to hear your story!

SO MUCH TO LIVE FOR

After two attempts to take his own life, Shawn Reardon looked up at the mountain during his third attempt and said, “this is it.”

“All I can think now is how thankful I am I didn’t do it. At the time I thought I had to do that. If there was a message to share with anybody it’s…I’m thankful it didn’t happen. I have so much to live for now. And everybody has so much to live for. You just don’t realize it when you’re in that state of mind.”
