Parents Who Promote the Culture of Life

I want to share one article and one video; both demonstrate a mother’s love for her child in spite of the circumstances.

Both only take a few minutes of one’s time.

A famous Chinese actress was told by 8 doctors to abort her baby. However she was encouraged by her friends and a few doctors to keep the baby.  She gave birth to a healthy baby girl.  This actress stopped filming and put her career on hold so she could breastfeed her baby and give her baby girl the best nurturing possible. Story at http://english.cri.cn/6666/2009/02/10/1321s452122.htm

In our parish we have parents with Down Syndrome children who recently adopted 2 Down Syndrome babies.  This video is for these mothers who have chosen life.  Enjoy this video.

Another Down Syndrome life:  “Jon Will’s Gift” by George Will.  Jon is his son.

    Thanks so much for sharing – I will have to share these w/others.
    I am almost speechless but so full of joy at the beauty of the Downs Baby one. When we decided to try for another child when I was 43, we knew there was a small chance of some special needs but we did not care; I refused any tests at all and could not wait to see if we had a special needs child – we hear so many great stories of lives enriched….
    I am so thankful this can be seen by so many – I will have to investigate this Downs group and complement them – I used to do work with Special Olympics and have always had a soft spot in my heart for these folks.

    S&J : I have watched the Downs video four times now; it is beautifully done; and the 2nd time, from the wedding picture that is there, it came to my mind that we had a special needs couple at NFP classes once – their names? Joseph and Mary! His mom was especially supportive!
