Disabled couple fights for right to care for newborn son

Disabled couple fights for right to care for newborn son | CTV News

This happened about a month ago. Parenting with a disability is controversial. I say, if a couple is physically, psychologically, and socially able to care for a baby, why not? On the other hand, parenting is a privilege - not a human right. Most people can make a baby, but it doesn't mean eveyone should.

I know the mother at the center of this firestorm. Though kind-hearted and sweet, I do not feel she will be a fit parent. She is immature. Perhaps this was why Children's Aid was alerted. Maybe it had little to do with physical limatations and more to do the immaturity of the mother and father. They have been allowed to keep their son.  

A child is a gift. I hope he is raised as one - not as a way of proving anything to society about those with disabilties.

Neon Lights....



"Neon Lights"


Everyday there's a thousand things
That somehow pass us by,
Go cut through the noise
So you can know what love sounds like
I'm comin' to your frequency,
To 106 point me
So there's no
Distractions

Take a breath

Take it in
Love has no expiration date
My heart will always beat for you
At a constant rate
It will outlast everything
You think is set is stone
It goes on and on and on and on,
On and on and on and on...

Spastic like

Neon Lights
Can you feel my love?
Loud and clear
Pulls you near
Can you feel my love

We got all the memories

So much more we can see
Better than our first kiss
Snow falling at Christmas
Like sleeping in on Sunday
Laughter we never faked
Bob Marley in Summer
One love for each other

Oh it feels like...


Fireflies

Day and night
Can you feel my love?

Everyone is looking for a special connection

But it's like your compass points
A million directions
Do you need me to buy you
A telescope so you can see
How good
This could be

Spastic like

Neon Lights
Can you feel my love?
Loud and clear
Pulls you near
Can you feel me love?

Oh!


We got all the memories

So much more we can see
Better than our first kiss
Snow falling at Christmas
Like sleeping in on Sunday
Laughter we never faked
Bob Marley in Summer
One love for each other

Oh it feels like...


Fireflies

Day and night
Can you feel my love?
(Can you feel it?)

And I'll wait for you

As long as it takes
Until I get through
And it hits you right in the face

Can you feel my lo-o-ove?

Can you feel my love?

We got all the memories

So much more we can see
Better than our first kiss
Snow falling at Christmas
Like sleeping in on Sunday
Laughter we never faked
Bob Marley in Summer
One love for each other

Oh it feels like...


(One love for each other...)

Day and night
Can you feel my love?
