Parents call children with down syndrome “gifts from God”

The parents of a child with down syndrome wrote a newspaper editorial about how valuable children with down syndrome are. Here is an excerpt:

“There are no more giving, joyful, happy or precious children then Downs children. They are a genuine gift from God. Our son teaches us the meaning of patience and love and faith – just by his very existence. He has touched the lives of so many of our relatives and friends, adding dimensions they had not known existed. And he has helped us grow as a couple and as parents.”

Randall J Hekman Justice for the Unborn (Ann Arbor, Michigan: Servant Books, 1984) 55
