Sarah Palin, McCain’s VP pick

Quote from Gov. Palin about her son Trig, born in April with Down’s Syndrome:

“Trig is beautiful and already adored by us. We knew through early testing he would face special challenges, and we feel privileged that God would entrust us with this gift and allow us unspeakable joy as he entered our lives. We have faith that every baby is created for good purpose and has potential to make this world a better place. We are truly blessed.” (HT: CRI)

That’s what I’m talking about.  About 90% of Down’s Syndrome babies are aborted, even though parents of these babies often testify about how much joy they bring to their families and to others.  Gov. Palin and her husband get it.  Every child is a treasure.  If we open our hearts to them, we will be amazed at what God does within us.

We were encouraged by all of our doctors to abort Michael, but what blessings we would have missed if we had done so!

    Thanks for this post, I wouldn’t have known this about Palin. Saying as much reveals where her heart is.
