A Life Defined Not By Disability, But Love

When Bonnie Brown was pregnant with her daughter, Myra, she says she felt a mix of joy and anxiety.  "I hadn't ever been pregnant before," she says. "I never had really an idea of how to take care of a baby."  Brown, who is intellectually disabled, works at Wendy's while raising     Myra as a single mom. Despite her disability, she says she never felt like her daughter was too much to handle. "I think because I'm different it might seem hard for me, but I was going to give it all I got no matter what," she tells Myra, now 15, during a visit to StoryCorps.
