Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not
self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does
not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always
trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. I Corinthians 13:4-7 (NIV)

If treatment is administered does it mean we don't value that individual as they are created? Interesting questions and comments...
2) This blog post by Shatter Nicely makes me sad. Though clearly only one component of what pushed her away from Christianity, I hope this church's (small c) response to a special needs child (ADHD) and his parents is becoming a thing of the past. I'll have to finish reading this series.
3) More from crosswalk.com on eliminating the R-word from our vocabulary.

5) To provide the best care for our children we need help in a lot of areas. This post at Hopeful Parents suggests three key areas that are the foundation of a strong support system.
