My Special Needs Child is a Blessing

My wife and I gave birth to a special needs child back in 2008. It’s hard. We love our little guy as much as any other child we have, but if we’re to be honest life is harder with, than without a special needs child. I have been told by several people over the years that they could not handle it, and because of that, they would have aborted. The first of those comments came only weeks after my wife gave birth to our son, and the last comment like that, or most recent, came only a few months ago.

Response: TODD’S AMERICAN DISPATCH: Christian bakery closes after LGBT threats, protests

I can honestly say I saw this coming. I predicted that when we started legalizing same sex unions it would run down this path. I had debate after debate with those who said it wouldn’t.

I was truly, and pleasantly surprised to find a whole host of comments condemning the absolute stupidity of what was displayed for young people who have followed this gal for years on Disney. Without question there are far more people who were let down by the actions of this rising star than I thought might be.

Response: California Transgender-Student Bill

If the transgender-student bill wasn’t so disgustingly in violation of the rights of straight people this might be funny! I’m trying to figure out how many drugs a person has to take throughout their life to come up with the idea that this makes sense. So now, the little girl who already gets teased about certain parts developing early has to deal with the absolutely uncomfortable fact that while Johnny claims to be a girl he’s actually got a penis and likes to stare at Susie’s parts in the shower! Not to mention the effects this might have on elementary level kids.
