Mothers are the heart and soul of the Orthodox Christian response to persons with disability. On my resource page I have a list of family blogs which include a number of them.
A mother is a window into heavenly Jerusalem’s maternal devotion to her children, which the Lord has revealed in Creation in our Mother the Church, Christ’s Bride, and the Mother of God, the Most Holy Theotokos, and every mother made in the image of God, especially the Orthodox Christian ones striving toward likeness to God in word and deed and more importantly in their very being, according to the fullness of the Faith, and their faith.
And here is the weblog of one of them, Alana, from Kentucky, entitled Morning Coffee, who shares with us her joys and struggles: http://morningcoffee.blogspot.com/
Thank you, Alana.
