a woman at church told me that she is praying for blessed margaret of castello to intercede for us. she is so sweet. she talks to jedi everytime i see her. wednesday she tried to teach him "GO DAWGS!", until i told her that his dad wouldn't appreciate that lesson very much. i asked her to tell me more about blessed margaret and she related the story. i googled her when i got home and found this.
pretty touching. i know historically people were just SO embarassed about their special needs child- but it really shocks me when i run into a similar sentiment in current times. i think it is similar to the shock I had when i learned that bigotry was still alive and kicking. i was pretty sheltered:)
