I made a choice since when something bad happens, you have three choices:
you can either let it define you.
Let it destroy you, OR...
you can let it strengthen you.

When I met Krescene Beck & Tess Sakolsky through one of our daily monthly meetings, they did changed my life of how I really wants to help with deaf communities in statewide for Illinois. I let it strengthen me for whatever has happened to me. People with disabilities and Deaf are not alone and I do see that there is a hope with a light. From this information - I have learning what is the purposes of building meaningful live. AWESOME!!!

Valentine's Day at MRI was full of smiles and warm hearts! At our main building, we had a Valentine's Day dance where a King and Queen were crowned. Voting took place this morning and the candidates created posters promoting themselves.
Over at Independence Pointe, the children at Discovery Depot were busy handing out valentines among their classmates and practicing their counting with candy hearts!
Everyone here at MRI would like to wish you a happy Valentine's Day!

Matt, a Day Training and CAPS participant at MRI, presented Amy with this gift he helped create today! The towel serves as a reminder that smiling is the GREATEST SUPERPOWER anyone can possess. In Matt's spare time he enjoys doodling, and smiley faces make many appearances. With the help of his mother he was able to complete this gift and surprise Amy today. Thank you Matt!!
Don't be afraid to show off YOUR superpower! #Smile

Last month you might recall the post we had about Carl and his beautiful scarf he knitted. We had a chance to catch up with the knitting club just to see what all happens there. Sue, a case manager at MRI, started the club and instructs first time knitters through the whole process.

- Katy was interested in the club but was unsure she would be able to participate due to her lack of mobility. Through some ingenuity, Sue was able to mount a loom to a table so Katy could achiev...e her goal to knit.

- Reene has the most experience in the club and has even taught Sue how to knit. During my attempt at knitting Reene assisted and coached me through the steps, even fixing the multiple mistakes I made.

- Chris started about the same time as Katy and is learning the whole process as well. Chris has ADHD and typically gets frustrated easily with difficult tasks. Knitting has been a challenge but Chris finds the activity to be relaxing and entertaining.
