A favorite oldie from days in Oklahoma. It reminds us of Emily's joy!

Saturday, September 20, 2008

As the new school year began and as autumn approaches, we think of Emily even more. She loved school. Just to make sure she was going to school the next day, she'd often say, "School tomorrow--bus tomorrow!" We drive by the bus stop every day and think of how much joy she got walking there to pet her two labrador friends before she'd hop on the bus.

Today we saw a beautiful Down syndrome girl with her parents at the store. And we see Sarah Palin's little Down's boy on TV... Each time we're reminded of our Emily. We thank God for her and pray that our culture would see the gift that these little ones are to our world instead of aborting 85% of them before they even get their first chance to breathe. God, forgive our nation.
