Special needs children – a beautiful gift

Special needs children – a beautiful gift

More than 90 percent of babies diagnosed with Down Syndrome are aborted…”-ABC News

I wanted to share with you this beautiful and touching video about a brother and a special needs sister.  It captures the pure love of a sibling relationship.

When I hear of individuals aborting children with special needs, it breaks my heart. I have a brother who has Down Syndrome and he has been a miracle in not only my family’s life, but to thousands in the community. He has changed people’s lives by his loving smile and hugs. I know firsthand that raising a special needs child can be very difficult with all of the doctor’s appointments, therapies, and attendant care – but it is extremely rewarding and can bless lives more than one would ever expect.

What is wonderful is that even if a woman doesn’t want to keep the baby herself, there are many, many families who are willing to adopt special needs children. It is a beautiful gift to give to another family.
