A Mother's Disability is Factored into A Father's Custody Lawsuit Against Her

For the whole post, click on the title just below, or on the link at the end of this excerpt from Cara's post over at The Curvature blog. Thanks, Cara, for all your great work!!
Kaney O'Neill, a 31-year-old white woman with blonde hair, sits in her powerchair at home with her infant son Aidan strapped to her chest. Aidan wears a red onsie and apears to be gurgling. Kaney is wearing a gray and black striped sweater, and has a broad grin on her face.
Kaney O’Neill is a 31-year-old mother with a 5-month-old son. Her ex-boyfriend, and her son’s father, is now waging an ugly custody battle against her. So far, it’s an experience that countless parents have endured. What makes O’Neill’s story newsworthy, if not rare, is the fact that she has a disability — and her ex is using that disability as evidence that she is an unfit parent.
