I just posted this on Schwablearning forum, in reply to Jmj who wrote of her sons Dyslexia;

Jmj, if you don't mind me quoting you:
"As hard as it is to experience the struggles of life and particularly as a parent experiencing our child's struggle, I so desire for it to have a higher purpose. In my own son's life it has given him eyes for those that people mistreat or have forgotten...the kid in the wheelchair in ESE that nobody ever talks to, the kids at lunch that never get invited to sit at a table and he has made it his goal to welcome and befriend such as these. My desire is to not always focus on his particular issues (which the last several days I certainly have!) but to see how God is using it for good in the bigger picture."

What greater vision could we have for humanity!
GeoffPfft,

That is so cool!! I think kids who experience difficulties in life(i am not saying all kids are) are more aware of others needs and are kinda like an angel in disguise for kids who have not got a friend/place to eat lunch or people who understand what its like and will stand by them no matter what. Jmj i think you have a very special child Grin
