Bubbles,Buttercup & Pikachufan ,

This is the best podcast ever!

This is great. If you guys like to & please look at marriage rights for us people with disabilities. There is a Facebook page called marriage equally for people with disabilities. Please please look into it. I find it very sad as to why we are denied medical stuff once we get married. That is so unfair & cruel. We shouldn't have to choose money over love. :'( Also another thing some schools don't have special ed programs & because of that disabled kids can't learn as well & also get bulled because of it. This needs to be available all around the states! We ether need to help those school fund those programs or send the kids with disabilities with a school who actually have special ed classes. That is all keep it up. I just subscribed! ^_^
