“Let’s fulfill and mean the term, ‘One Jamat’ in its true sense, by not marginalizing us, feeling sorry for us, or only remembering us once a year during Special Needs Awareness Week. Instead, be open to including us, welcoming us, accommodating us in every event, as all we seek is love.”  - Students of the Dallas Creative Learning Center.

Just three months shy of her first birthday, Houston’s Alesha Kajani was admitted to the hospital. Suffering from an elevated fever and a precariously low red blood count, she was administered four doses of antibiotics. Alesha’s mom, Mehreen, did not understand what was happening to her only child, and prayed that this was just a fluke—something that could be taken care of quickly and life would go back to being all diapers and giggles.
