So many parents today kill their babies in utero because they find out they have a physical or mental challenge. That always boggles my mind. I wonder if anybody asks them, "What if you found out your baby was sick when he was three months old. Would you ask the doctor to treat him by killing him?"
Life is filled with challenges. How many people have been injured in a car, bike, skateboard, sledding, diving, trampoline, sports, etc. accidents? Your perfectly healthy five-year-old could face a tragedy tomorrow that left her permanently brain damaged. Your teenager could fall and hit his head and be in a coma. There are no guarantees in life.
I'm so glad to be a Catholic and know that God loves me and my family more than I can even imagine. No matter what happens, He is in control and will be there right with me as I struggle through it. And he loves my children and grandchildren more than I do. Trust in God. It's not easy, but it's the only way to peace.
