This week's Friday newsletter went out this morning with a theme of inspiration, offering links to Love Notes for Special Parents and other spots on this site to give you a lift. I mentioned how inspired I've been by contributions to the Readers Respond page for giving thanks for your child with special needs, and a new entry came in a couple of hours ago that lifted my spirits. Wrote DonT:
"It truly is a blessing to share our stories of pride, love, sometimes a little frustration, but always compassionate feelings toward our special children! I love Kira, my 4 yr old with DS, so much that my heart aches and swells with the joy that God has given my family. I've learned more about myself than ever before! I am so thankful to experince life with her and I will continue to pray for each family member who has similar challenges to face. But take heart, because within every special challenge there lies a unique gift that can be shared to inspire us all!"
Good words to send us into the weekend. Are you feeling thankful for your child today? Add your response.
