Inside this Body

Can you guess why my beautiful girl is singing? Because she knows that she holds the key to curing cancer.

If we as a culture had successfully killed off all fetuses with Down syndrome, the cure you may someday desperately need would be that much further out of reach.

While she has meant the world to me since her arrival in it, I am so pleased to think that her existence, and that of those like her, may bring about the greatest and most elusive cure in modern medicine. Let’s hear it for that extra 21st chromosome!

Praise God! His ways are not our ways...and every life is important.

I can't believe how fast she's growing! What a gorgeous girl you have!
