Did anyone see the Hallmark move “A Smile as Big as the Moon” on Sunday night? I have to say I am a sap for Hallmark movies but this one was especially special to me.
It was a true story of a teacher, Mike Kerjses (played by John Corbett) and a former Forest Hills administrator, Robynn McKinney who started a program called Space is Special for special needs students in 1989. What an incredible effort this must have been!
I am so thankful for the work that Kerjses and McKinney have done and their advocacy of individuals with special needs. It is so good to see these kinds of stories being shown on prime time TV to bring attention to these children and others like them.
