Meet Karla Richey, publisher of "Miami Kids Magazine"


Every day, when I look around, I realize how happy we are with all the blessings that we have in life. Sometimes we get upset or frustrated from things that we cannot control. Unfortunately, not everyone can say that because they have to deal with many difficulties in their life like being blind, having a prosthesis, not being able to talk or hear, or they may have another disability. Even with all these difficulties, they should see the positivity in life! Nothing is impossible if you think you can do it! 


In this special issue, we want to recognize all the parents of exceptional kids for their hard work and dedication to their children. How parents see life is how they're going to transmit their feelings to their kids. That's why we believe that nothing is impossible! 


On the cover page, we have children from The Miami Lighthouse for the Blind. These kids are visually impaired, and some are blind but for them, nothing is impossible. They have a great leader as an example. Their CEO is Mrs. Virginia Jacko, who is also blind and has this important role and responsibility in our community. Like her, let's cheer our exceptional kids and show them that they can do many things if they put their minds to it. Another great example is all the athletes at the Special Olympics! Don’t you think? 


This issue is very special for us as we are very thankful to The Rotary Club of Miami, an organization that I'm a proud member of, that helps us every year to sponsor our Special Assistance Guide. The purpose of the guide is to assist many families to get information on therapy services, counseling advice, physiology, family therapy and much more. We are so happy that many physicians recommend our guide as a referral to their patients! This means so much to us because we are accomplishing our mission. 


Also, in this issue you will find a great fall activity guide sponsored by American Pediatric Dental, with many fun activities to do with the family during fall in Florida! If you are planning to travel, we highly recommend visiting Colorado Springs and the Garden of the God Resort and Club. Don’t miss reading more about it on page 32 



Let's celebrate life and be thankful for all of our blessings! Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
