A great deal of emotion was stirred in me as I read an article at MSN talking about a Thai Surrogate that kept a child with a disability despite being asked to abort it. As a father of a child born with Down Syndrome I can tell you, it can be rough! But I can tell you something else as well. That tough child is a child, a human child, and he has all the same needs for love and acceptance that any “normal” child has. He is quite capable of feeling emotion, and desperately needs the type of affection that speaks to him.

I laid in bed for the better part of two hours tonight unable to sleep before I got up to write this. I don’t think there has been a time in my life when I have felt so alone. As I laid in bed I couldn’t help but think: why doesn’t anyone understand? Or do they, and just not care? Perhaps they don’t know? So here it is, I’m going to let my girl (emotions) out for a post tonight.
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.
