Robert Koehler, an an editor at Tribune Media Services and a nationally syndicated writer, wrote a short article about a young man named Martin in September that provides a window into the life of a family wrestling with the tough issues which families with children who have disabilities have to deal with.
Welcome to Martin’s world . . .This excerpt from a letter Donna Harnett sent out in August about the latest emergency in the life of her 11-year-old son concludes with a plea for our prayers, and that seems an appropriate place to start, but the prayer I would suggest is not one of despair or desperation, but gratitude: Thank you, Martin, for what you are giving us, for the beautiful, triumphant struggle that is your life.”
