Visionaries are not born; they're made.
What makes someone a visionary? Perhaps it's the ability to see possibility where others do not.

Liz: (on son Elias) Elias has an intangible spirit. It drives me to be a better mom and a better person every day. He shows me that anything is possible. He is and always has been my sunshine. When I do things wrong as a mom he looks beyond that and loves me anyway. His unconditional love makes me a better mom.
Being a mom of a child with a disability teaches you patience. It gives you strength; it empowers you. I feel like a supermom because I've had to take so many extra steps and different routes to advocate and make sure my son gets all he needs and deserves on a daily, consistent basis. It makes me feel super - it makes me feel stronger. I feel like a super mom. And [Elias] tells me that; he tells me I'm like superwoman.
