Why are we, as parents, still so deeply involved in our 22-year-old daughter’s life? Because she’s asked us to be.
Our daughter, Mui, has a very rare skin disorder. Most born with it die in childhood. She survived. It was a struggle. It took the courage of my wife to make Mui strong when everyone else turned the other way.
Then cyber bullies wanted Mui to kill herself.
Eventually, she batted away her suicidal thoughts.
But as a result of cyberbullying we’ve written a book. The “how and why” two ordinary people adopted an extraordinary child; and what we three have overcome before and since to still be here today.
We have no one to help us find a publisher besides our band of Facebook friends. But we’ve raised a daughter to adulthood alone and against all odds, so together we will soon get our book on the bookshelves. We welcome and appreciate your support.
This TEDx video is a response to the cyberbullies who wanted Mui dead.
Cyberbullying can happen to anyone.
