All day long I have been following news on little baby doe. I mentioned him in my last post. What had happened was a family had committed to adopting a set of twins. Upon arrival at the hospital they discovered that one of the twins had DS and was in critical condition. They took one baby home and left the other twin with a Do Not Resuscitate order. Throughout the day there has been posts on facebooks and blogs pleading individuals to write the Governor of Arkansas, where the twins were born and the DS Adoption Awareness coordinator for the area. There also is apparently a homestudy ready family prepared to adopt the baby.
Here is the thing-all correspondence in regards to this matter have been on facebook. Naturally, one then calls to questions the validity of facts. But here is how I see it – true or not, whether this was the way it appears or simply a “drill” the DS community proved themselves today. DON’T MESS WITH OUR KIDS OR WE WILL ALL COME AND GET YOU! I knew I was welcomed into a special community when Ella was born, but today takes it to a whole new level. When word was out that the DNR order was taken off there was an uproar of rejoicing and pride. The group of 200 that was just set up today exploded with “Praise the Lord”s Cheers and Prayers.
Take it as you will, but God was in this situation today and it was beautiful.
