Ms. Wheelchair America 2016 Stands Up For Disabled Parents’ Rights

Should being wheelchair-bound disqualify you from adopting a child?  Ms. Wheelchair America 2016 says absolutely not!

Alette Coble-Temple was crowned Ms. Wheelchair American 2016 on Aug. 1 in Des Moines, Iowa after giving a speech on equality and parental rights.

According to the Contra Costa Times, the Walnut Creek, California native and her husband fought to adopt a young girl after being told by 20 adoption agencies that she was "too disabled to be a mom."

Coble-Temple, a JFK University psychology professor and a California Parole Board assessor, has suffered from cerebral palsy from birth but at age 45 is planning to wheel her way up steep inclines in all 50 states as a way to raise awareness and continue the fight for disabled parents' rights.

"With my platform, I want to help to create legislative changes that eliminate the years of using disability as a reason to remove a child from its home," she said.
