Among those of us who care deeply for and about people with developmental disabilities, I hope to hear emerge a new voice, ours, rising together for the benefit of all, harmonizing with reason, respect and hope, and transcending divisions, giving birth to a new era of creative cooperation.

Toward this potential, DD EXCHANGE is for conversation, civil sounding off, sharing of stories, experience, information, resources, and inspiration, giving and receiving support, and creative problem solving.

Having written, yesterday,  to Susannah Frame asking for a link to the viewer comments that should accompany the little intro to her promised viewer comment article that was  posted @ King5.com, I received this back from her this morning:

"Hi Saskia I wrote what you see there. And I've assembled all of the comments but someone else has to attach the two together so I am hoping someone from our web team can do that today."

 In the meantime, Cheryl Felak has ferreted out  and posted on her blog 20 letters  from RHC friends, families and guardians that King5 somehow posted individually and apart from what Susannah wrote.  https://becausewecare1.com/2016/04/21/families-bash-king-5-for-series/ .

I think they should be available to King-5s wider audience, and hopefully, they will be, but in the meantime, a big round of applause to Cheryl for having found and posted them!
