There is a plaque hanging on the wall of the cardiac unit of Sick Children's Hospital in Toronto that reads:

"You must be a very special person to be given such a special child!"

I read that plaque many times over the years as I walked the corridors of that unit while my youngest son was in for multiple surgeries... we often hear the words, "why me?" when parents have a child with special needs. I never asked why me, instead I said "why not me, and what lesson am I going to learn?"

We learn more from our children than we ever will teach them . :)
That is a wonderful saying to put on a plaque, and i am sure it gives encouragement to many.
I couldn't agree more, Shadow, about learning from children. We do have a job to do, but sometimes we forget that it is a two way street and we need to listen,...out of the mouth of babes... :wink:
