Right On !!
25 November 2006 | by DebswaysonlySee all my reviews

I am a professional Support Person and Home Care Provider. This movie is right on. Thank You for sharing your world with us. The more people that understand and see our work/your work the better we are able to support those who need us. I know how hard it is to find people to fill these kind of jobs. Many people, especially young adults, have had little exposure to anyone with disabilities ( this is my person observation only). But with this wonderful success story out there in movie form , it is a great way to open doors and minds. I emailed the next CNN air time to my entire support and case management team. I know they will enjoy it as much as I did !!
