Hi guys! My name is Linda B. Hall. I am the mother of a developmentally delayed 19 year old girl with Cerebral Palsy. Her name is Djanai. I also have a 10 year old daughter named Djaeda, and two boys who are 9, Djordan, and 1 years old, Djulian.
It has truly been a challenge for my husband and I to find activities in which the whole family could participate in together. So I decided to create a place where we could experience activities for everyone. A place that is totally accessible and fun for my teenager who’s in a wheelchair, but still entertaining for the younger kids as well. A place where we could expose typically able kids to those who have disabilities and teach them to play with one another. Developing bonds and bridges, teaching compassion and patience. Hence creating a stronger and more tolerant community.
As a parent when you have heard worse case scenarios concerning your differently labeled child, it sometimes leave you feeling hopeless. You desire to see that precious soul have some form of normalcy. Especially when you know that they are filled with life, feelings, and emotions just like everyone else. And that’s why I decided to start InClusion ClubHouse. Because my love superseded the barriers! And I wanted more for my child. Djanai has surpassed so many negative reports, and we have strived and will continue to strive to make her and many more of those Special Needs souls feel worthy, loved, and included.
There are some tiresome days, and sleepless nights. But it is truly all worth it when we see her and many others smile.
