|"Sailing" Painted by Clarissa, enhanced by Mommy Malu.|
Many people have asked me why Clarissa doesn't go to school anymore. "What about her social life?" they ask. How I wish she could do both, go to school and be home schooled at the same time. I must admit that I envy other children with special needs who are able to talk, run, read books and even have jobs. There were times I, like Apostle Paul, questioned God why He had given Clarissa a "thorn in the flesh." Apart from having Down syndrome, Clarissa's hearing impairment has hampered her learning abilities. Because she is also bipolar, her mood swings have been so erratic for years now.

It's amazing how God make our minds and hands work together and be able to communicate with each other. He is truly amazing! To God be all the glory and praise!
