When Ace’s brother, Archie, was born, doctors told his biological mother that he had Down syndrome. His mother couldn’t take care of him, so Ace’s family was able to adopt him. Even though there are many differences between Ace and Archie, Ace loves her brother. She wouldn’t change a thing about him because, as she reminds us, “he is perfect because God made him.”
So often we look at our bodies in disgust, but how often do we remember that God made us the way we are? Do we show love to our bodies as well as to others who may be different from us? It is easy to get so caught up in appearances that we don’t take the time to get to know people who are different from us.
