The Geraldi's are amazing family to take care a bunch of children that no biological parents don't want to take care because of emotioal and fiancial drain.Not only Leslie Stahl from CBS' 60 minutes not only filmed and visited the 3 homes where one big backyard in Kendall, an suburb of Miami.I too spend a week at her compound.I had fun at their house with her children with mentally and physically challedged.To tell you the truth, Mrs Camille is an real life MOTHER TERESA.I hate the outside world because all we see is normal babies and children everyday,in an eyeful.If an parent gave birth or have a child born with disabilities,they be ready to shunned and hide them out of sight in public view.It's a bunch of disabled children we don't hardly see in the public,because parents and family members too ashamed to bring them out,feared of ignorent public people point,stared,teased,avoid,afraid and will laughed at them front of their face.Why parents and family members keep them hidden at home.Dr and Mrs Geraldi take their children out.Camille don't hide her children,she also celebrate them as well.I wish parents will stop hiding their disabled child because their is nothing to be ashamed of,KIDS ARE KIDS.They are humans just like everybody people of race.we are humans like everybody else.
