I believe that institutions should have their doors closed forever. People in institutions are not given the opportunity for growth; there is no stimulation or effort to integrate them into the general population. As a person with disabilities, I live with my mom and enjoy certain freedoms. I recently became engaged to a wonderful woman, and this would not have been a possibility if we lived in an institution. I can love and live in my community just like you.
