Inclusion (Special Needs)

Nathan lives next door to Miss Sandy, a raptor rehabilitator. She's very busy taking care of injured birds of prey, like owls and hawks. Nathan wishes he could help Miss Sandy with some of her chores, but he is confined to his wheelchair because of cerebral palsy. Then Fire, an owl with a broken wing, comes to Miss Sandy. Fire is desperate to fly and Nathan can't wait for Fire to get her wish. But on the day Fire tries to fly, she cannot do it. Miss Sandy says the owl's wing will never be strong enough. The light goes out in Fire's eyes and she stops eating. Nathan desperately searches for a way to help Fire, not realizing that what he finds will help transform his life as well.
