Congresswoman criticized who compared “Christian militant” abortion clinic bombers to Islamic jihadists

So Sheila, these Islamofascist terrorists want America destroyed: liberals, conservatives, Christians, Jews, the young, the old, the good-looking, the ugly, the capricorns, the geminis, the golfers, the ballers, the snowboarders, the skiers, the Burger Kings and the McDonald’s, the Albertson’s and the WalMarts, the heterosexuals, the homosexuals, the bisexuals and the trisexuals, Morehouse or the […]

Stanek Sunday extra: Eucharist flash mob

From the National Catholic Register, June 24: So, technically, this doesn’t quite qualify as a flash mob, but I love it nonetheless. The video features two Capuchin Franciscan friars (I’m guessing that they could be from this friary) who bring the body of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist right into the center of Preston, England’s […]

Stanek weekend question: Is treatment for ectopic pregnancy an abortion? Is it moral?

I received the following email this week: Hi Jill, I am unfortunately in need of some good insight. My daughter is 30 and has wanted a baby for a long time. She finally got pregnant, but it was an ectopic pregnancy the doctors missed until she had to be rushed to the hospital. They did […]

Sign petition to FDA: If cigarette warning labels, then abortion warning labels

On June 21 the FDA announced it would begin forcing cigarette companies to post graphic warning labels on packaging beginning September 2012. Its rationale: “President Obama is committed to protecting our nation’s children and the American people from the dangers of tobacco use.

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 Most books and pamphlets are so outdated the material is beyond depressing….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!

~ Annie Reid, discussing what she has learned from her daughter Ollie Faith, who was prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome and is now three years old, The House That Jade Built via NetworkedBlogs.com, April 23
