The Internet is a wonderful thing. It allows people like me to "throw ideas to the world" with hopes of a response. Someone saw my blog...connections were made...emails were sent and forwarded and reached Magee Landrum. Maggie contacted me via email saying, "A friend of a friend sent me a link to your blog and if you are still looking for participants, I'd like to volunteer. ... I was thinking about a decision I made recently. My son is in the process of being diagnosed with fairly severe ADHD and there is a lot of pressure to put children with this affliction on drugs. The decision I made was not to medicate - to embrace the difference rather than try to suppress it or normalize it."
Our exchange of message went on until this portrait resulted. It was clear that her decision was made after very, very careful consideration from every angle and with loads of love.
