Happy Martin Luther King Day!!! This year I have given a huge shot out to my three outstanding PIP teacher’s Dr. Penni, Ms. Evette, and Ms. Ronita, in which DR. MLK had encouraged them in there life, and now each of them is encouraging me on my path, becoming an advocate for people with disabilities.

I just found out today is the International Day of Acceptance of people with disabilities. I am here to tell the world I embrace who I am; a person with social rights, who has an opinion, who has interests, who has goals. I love my life, family, friends, and my faith in God. Having a disability does not make someone less of an adult, innocent, or unaware. I have sexual wants and desires of a woman desiring a companion. It’s hard, hurtful, and has become a thick cloud of lust, of wanting but not having it.I am a person who is empowered to make a difference in the world and will not be without a voice in society. I’m not living disabled, and I am living has a role in our culture and life. I can start the change by demonstrating acceptance and showing the world that I embrace people of all abilities.Embrace. Educate. Empower — love life.

A letter to you


Dear fellow Cerebral Palsy Advocate,

My name is Amanda Fino. I’m thrilled and excited to say that my new book, CP Gal, is coming out on December 15, 2019. In it, I wrote the real hardships that I have endured growing up with cerebral palsy. I found my own voice in the hopes of becoming the voice for those who, through disability, cannot speak for themselves. Coming out from my beloved book publishing company, Blue Fortune Enterprises, LLC, on December 15, 2019. My dream is to have it on Amazon’s bestseller list in its first week. I’m looking for help to spread the word. Writing my autobiography was very therapeutic. It allowed me to express myself, my truth. https://www.facebook.com/events/768447166901838/

I feel like there needs to be a book on adult matters of a full-flesh woman that has Cerebral Palsy — expressing my deep inner emotions within myself. Having a unique personal outlook on life, I admit that I made a lot of horrible mistakes on my behalf, and I own up to ALL of them. In hopes for other young people that has Cerebral Palsy not to make the same mistake as I did.

In honor of CP Gal, I invite all of you to share this in hopes of spreading disability awareness. Your help is needed for those who suffer from Cerebral Palsy and other Maladies. Let’s make a movement in history. Please take a second to sign this petition. http://chng.it/b6VmsmvLdJ

Thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to read this.
