We can be too distracted, too overwhelmed, too busy, too pressured to properly give thanks. Perhaps more than anyone, we need parents to take time out for gratitude. More than stigma, more than misleading campaigns, more than denial, we need people who embrace and support the gift of life, from its earliest moments to its final days. Making it possible for a mom or a dad to raise a child with love and happiness is something we can all help with — not a mere political campaign or slogan.
