JivinJ’s Life Links 10-27-08

by George Weigel and editorial entitled, “Catholic Brief for Obama.” It’s almost like endorsing Obama makes people dumber. Of course it’s not that and every election cycle people of both sides disavow previously firm beliefs and issues simply because they prefer a certain candidate. But this year with Obama it just seems to have exponentially […]

Stephen Baldwin: Obama is “cultural terrorist”

New poll/Old poll

The new poll question is up: This week the media reported Sarah Palin’s new wardrobe cost $150,000. It didn’t report how much her 3 amigos’ suits cost. It didn’t report how much Michelle Obama’s wardrobe cost. Do you think this is but one example of the media’s sexist or ideological prejudice against Palin? Shock, we […]

Weekend question

This question was posed on Planned Parenthood’s The Alan Guttmacher Institute, published a study in November 2006 estimating, “Among women having abortions in the United States, about one-half have already had a prior abortion.” If one’s first abortion is the fault of inadequate sex education or nonavailability of contraception, whose fault is a repeat abortion, […]

What I have learned in the last 3 years is what to really expect when having a child with Down Syndrome. Someone once gave me a book about what to expect, I read a few chapters and threw it away. I hated it. Most books and pamphlets are so outdated the material is beyond depressing….

Some people still don’t see the beauty in a child like ours….

I have learned there is beauty in “imperfections”. I don’t believe Ollie is one bit imperfect but in the eyes of many she is. There is great beauty in all her God given pieces. Her crooked pinky fingers, the light spots in her eyes, the way she smiles…. Her tiny little heart beat that doesn’t beat quite as it should but it’s healthy – oh that heart beat is precious. The way she smiles with her whole body – I can truly see her smile from the back of her head she wears it so well!

I have learned that God’s plans are always best and in time they always make sense. I have learned that unanswered prayers are often answered – just not as you have requested. I have learned that having a sibling with Down Syndrome doesn’t limit your other children but makes them better, more compassionate, more understanding, more open hearted, more open to the world in general….

Fear is abolished, God has prevailed! Every day I thank the good Lord for that single extra chromosome that has made all the difference!
