Some of you might be familiar with Cassy Fiano, a writer/blogger I’ve gotten to know over the years. Cassy’s husband is in the US Marine Corps and is currently serving in Afghanistan. It’s through them that I became aware of, and have taken part in, the Project Valour-IT fundraisers (which Michelle has also been involved with).

Recently Cassy and her husband got some troubling news: Their unborn son has been diagnosed with Down syndrome. Cassy has written about it in her latest column, Choosing Life and Beating the Odds: Accepting Down Syndrome.

My wife and I have friends who have a similar story. Their son was born a couple of years ago and all I can say is they’ve never once regretted their decision (like Cassy, the alternative was never an option for them), and they can’t imagine their lives without him.

If a society is indeed judged by how it treats its most helpless, people like Cassy, her husband, friends of my family and countless others out there who choose life are reasons to remain optimistic about our future.
