Most of you would never look at one of our boys and refer to them as "retarded". It wasn't too long ago that society & the medical community label our children with intellectual disabilities as retarded, unworthy, NOT able and institutionalized our babies at birth. Every time you casually use the word retarded as a synonym for stupid, you reenforce the negative, ignorant stereotype of the past. When you know better, you do better. Let's all make the pledge to do better!!
