Letter: Special-needs families define meaning of love

Special-needs families define meaning of love

Thanks to The News for publishing the article about the responsibility of raising special-needs children. Only the article should have been on the front page.

How can anyone not be touched by the courage of these families? I know they do not need hoorays, but they have been given, for whatever reason, a journey in life that defines the word love. Not some mushy love our culture perpetuates. But a love only their child understands in some deep way in which we will never understand.

Who knows what these sacrifices might hold for future children and families with similar conditions? Let everyone say a prayer for the innocents.
