Chance Shelton has come a long way in his journey to success; much of that journey was guided by Lynette Louise, our show host. However, most of Chance’s success in life was due to his determination and self-driven desire to become a better man. This is a desire Lynette sees as common in special needs members of society. It is extremely common and very strong in individuals from the autism community BEFORE we teach it out of them.
Chance went from abuse to Lynette’s adopting arms. He was multiply diagnosed and emotionally traumatized. He grew in a system that made him feel broken. Eventually Lynette took him out of school and he grew capable. He shares this story and the ways in which he thinks the system of education is broken and leads to violence. He has been in the National Guard and has done several tours of duty oversees. He is a marvel of intention made reality.
