When our second child, Mark was born on September 29, 1990 with severe mental and physical challenges, we had no idea what lay ahead. We were young and naïve parents ready to take the challenges that lay ahead do our best. As parents, we think of all the things we want to teach our children. Never did we realize that mark would be the one teaching us the lessons of wisdom, perseverance, courage, piety and true love.
From the moment Mark was born our love was tested and tried by all the challenges of feeding him, sicknesses, hospitalizations and surgeries. Not for one moment were we unhappy that he was and still is with us. Mark has always been a bundle of joy and a privilege to have with us.
