True love is infectious, and nothing could be more fetching than seeing love emanating from a big, happy family.
This family is particularly special. Janet and Keith accepted their first son, born with severe disabilities, with so much love that the experience of caring for him opened their hearts to later adopting another little girl with Down Syndrome. This would be their third child.
The example of friends who had adopted three siblings with Downs also inspired them to adopt and they went on to adopt and foster dozens of disabled children.
Their own love and example inspired family members to open their homes to adoption and foster care. What a beautiful testimony to the wonder and beauty of all human life.
This week I will have the opportunity to view this movie, about a pastor and his wife who did something similar to Janet and Keith. Again, through the acceptance and love that they gave to their son born with severe disabilities, they became open to the lives of other abandoned and disabled children.
The movie DropBox is about their journey from regular parents to heroic lovers of life and the little children who come to them through a tiny door built into the side of their home.
May the world be graced with many, many more people like them.
