Tonight a speach was given that was wonderful to hear. Whether you are a Republican, a Democrat, or an Independent person politically; it was good to hear Sarah Palin, the Republican nominee for Vice President declare that “when” she and John McCain are elected…families of special needs children will have an advocate or friend in the highest offices in the United States government. That is something that we families have needed for a very long time! So, i say kudos to her for raising the awareness of the American people. She is the parent of a young baby who is affected by Down’s Syndrome.
