A TinyNote from Robyn 10.29.19

 TinyNote from Robyn:

Yesterday I had the opportunity to share our TinySuperheroes journey with 550 kids at Robinson Elementary School, a school in the same district as my own kids.

This morning I was dropping Sheldon off at daycare, and one of his teachers inquired if I was at Robinson yesterday.

She was asking because her granddaughter is in third grade there, and last night they went to Subway together. On their way, a family was crossing the street. They had a daughter with special needs who was waving at them as she crossed.

Sheldon’s teacher asked her granddaughter if she knew her and her granddaughter replied, “No, but I think she is a TinySuperhero!”

Which led to the conversation about how I had presented at her school that day.

This may seem subtle, but this is Extraordinary.

Among many things we are trying to do here at TinySuperheroes, the overall goal is to change the way the world sees disability – which we believe will empower our Squad and open doors for them that were otherwise closed.

I want children (and adults) to see others with special needs and recognize what makes them Extraordinary, instead of what makes them different. Yesterday, this sweet third grade girl did just that. I am bursting with pride for her openness to our message and pray it continues to spread.
