I had a wonderful time this afternoon at a luncheon benefiting Metrocare, a local organization that provides services to mentally disabled children and adults. The scrumptious luncheon, complete with all sorts of sweets up for bid, was held at the Belo downtown and featured an incredible speaker. Kim Stagliano shared stories about her three daughters, all of whom are on the autism spectrum. She told stories that made me laugh, others that made me tear up. Her message today was to not feel sorry for her and her kids, but she encouraged the attendees to reach out to those who are affected by disability. It was an inspiring and fun luncheon!
A special shout out to Karen Lukin and the event's main sponsor - WHOLE FOODS!
