Parents call baby with Down syndrome the “greatest joy of our lives”

The parents of a child with Down Syndrome shared the following:

“Three years ago we had a child with Down syndrome, a closed esophagus and leukemia. After months of heartache, long hours at the hospital, not to mention unpaid bills, today he is the greatest joy of our lives. Anyone whose mischief can make me laugh before I’ve had my first cup of coffee in the morning can’t be all bad.… Who is more severely handicapped, someone who asks for nothing but hugs and cookies, or the person who would deny him an existence because he will never be a doctor or a lawyer?”

Randall J Hekman Justice for the Unborn (Ann Arbor, Michigan: Servant Books, 1984) 56
