In last week’s Twitter storm, we got some great comments:
“I am disabled person, wheelchair user and mother of two children. My disability never stops me from being a great mother of my children. I love the motherhood and I’ve been able to bring up my two beautiful children, I even pushed my children’s pram with one hand. The experts are us!”
Another mum replied: “No, actually we are not bad mums, if anything we are more amazing because on top of disabilities we always put our children 1st and do stuff that people wouldn’t even know how to manage.”

Thanks to all who took part and retweeted from the online and in person picket of the Central Family Court, which happens the first Wednesday of every month. Held by Support Not Separation, with us and other member groups.
Thanks to Fleur Perry tweeting on the topic: Complete the sentence to give us a list of things we need to reclaim: Disabled people are not allowed to…
We replied: …start our own family and keep our children.
