Today John McCain announced who is running mate would be, Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska. Palin is the mother of five with the youngest being born with Downs Syndrome. She and her family released the following statement following their son Trig's birth.
"Trig is beautiful and already adored by us. We knew through early testing he would face special challenges, and we feel privileged that God would entrust us with this gift and allow us unspeakable joy as he entered our lives. We have faith that every baby is created for good purpose and has potential to make this world a better place. We are truly blessed."
Being the mother of a special needs child, I could not have said it better myself. Like Gov. Palin, our family has been truly blessed by the miracle that is Courtney. Thank you Lord for entrusting us with such a precious gift.
May God bless the Palin family and their pro-life witness.
