The kindness of others

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

-Mahatma Gandhi

I read recently about a single woman near Orlando, Florida, who over the last 10 years has adopted three children, two with special needs.

The woman is 44 and had already raised two biological children, both grown and out of the house. I’m humbled by her selflessness.    

I have been blessed with a healthy daughter, and I love being a parent, but it still takes a lot of energy to raise her. I can only imagine the love and dedication it takes to choose to become a single parent to three children, particularly those with special needs. 

Every child deserves a safe and loving home. It is life affirming to know there are unselfish people kind enough to provide one to those most in need.
