This book is about my experiences of traveling having a disability and the honor of bringing my friends with me who also have intellectual and physical challenges.
Our Theme is: We do not focus on our disability, nut our abilities and overcome barriers so we can have fun too.
My name is Tiffany Turner. I am 33 years old. I was born with a neurological deficiency syndrome, which resulted in being labeled with mental retardation. It may have been a case of me being a pre-mature baby and not fully developing, it could have been Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, or high risk delivery. That is what the doctors said. It is not what God said. I know that He has given me the joy and happiness that overlooks my outside appearance.
Reflecting over my years growing up, I would not trade them in even if I could. Even though I may have had challenges, I use them as stepping stones in life and realize it is all part of my journey.
As a young child, I can remember my family always going on trips and allowing me to attempt and do the same activities as my sister and my cousins.

We traveled a lot of places in the United States,..
