Palin Email: "A Down's Syndrome Baby will Expand your World"

It's funny. The media downloaded 25,000 pages of Palin's emails in an effort to destroy her and it may end up doing the exact opposite.

While Trig was still in the womb, Sarah Palin wrote an email to her extended family and friends about Trig. You've gotta' read this. As weird as it might sound she wrote it as if it were from God. I found it incredibly moving. The Daily Mail which published the entire email called it "extraordinary" and "touching" and predicted that it might "alter the way the former Governor of Alaska is viewed by the American public."

To the Sisters, Brother, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and Friends of Trig Paxson Van Palin (or whatever you end up naming him!):

I am blessing you with this surprise baby because I only want the best for you. I’ve heard your prayers that this baby will be happy and healthy, and I’ve answered them because Ionly want the best for you!

I heard your heart when you hinted that another boy would fit best in the Palin family, to round it out and complete that starting five line-up. Though another girl would be so nice, you didn’t think you could ask for what you REALLY wanted, but I knew, so I gave you a boy because I only want the best for you!

Then, I put the idea in your hearts that his name should be “Trig”, because it’s so fitting, with two Norse meanings: “True” and “Brave Victory”. You also have a Bristol Bay relative with that name, so I knew it would be best for you!

Then, I let Trig’s mom have an exceptionally comfortable pregnancy so she could enjoy every minute of it, and I even seemed to rush it along so she could wait until near the end to surprise you with the news – that way Piper wouldn’t have so long to wait and count down so many days – just like Christmastime when you have to wait, impatiently, for that special day to finally open your gift? (Or the way the Palins look forward to birthday celebrations that go on for three, four days… you all really like cake .) I know you, I knew you’d be better off with just a short time to wait!

Then, finally, I let Trig’s mom and dad find out before he was born that this little boy will truly be a GIFT. They were told in early tests that Trig may provide more challenges, and more joy, than what they ever may have imagined or ever asked for. At first the news seemed unreal and sad and confusing . But I gave Trig’ s mom and dad lots of time to think about it because they needed lots of time to understand that everything will be OK, in fact, everything will be great, because I only want the best for you!

I‘ve given Trig’s mom and dad peace and joy as they wait to meet their new son. I gave them a happy anticipation because they asked me for that. I‘ll give all of you the same happy anticipation and strength to deal with Trig’s challenges, but I won’t impose on you…

I just need to know you want to receive my offer to be with all of you and help you everyday to make Trig’s life a great one.

This new person in your life can help everyone put things in perspective and bind us together and get everyone focused on what really matters . The baby will expand your world and let you see and feel things you haven’t experienced yet. He’ll show you what “true, brave victory“ really means as those who love him will think less about self and focus less on what the world tells you is ”normal“ or ”perfect”. You will grow and be blessed with greater understanding that will be born along with Trig.

Trig will be his dad‘s little buddy and he’ll wear Carhartts while he learns to tinker in the garage. He’ll love to be read to, he’ll want to play goalie, and he‘ll steal his mom’s heart just like Track, Bristol, Willow and Piper did. And Trig will be the cuddly, innocent, mischievous, dependent little brother that his siblings have been waiting for in fact Trig will – in some diagnostic ways – always be a mischievous, dependent little brother, because I created him a bit different than a lot of babies born into this world today.

Every child is created special, with awesome purpose and amazing potential. Children are the most precious and promising ingredient in this mixed up world you live in down there on earth. Trig is no different, except he has one extra chromosome. Doctors call it “Down’s Syndrome”, and Downs kids have challenges, but can bring you much delight and more love than you can ever imagine! Just wait and see, let me prove this, because I only want the best for you!

Some of the rest of the world may not want him, but take comfort in that because the world will not compete for him. Take care of him and he will always be yours!

Trig‘s mom and dad don’t want people to focus on the baby’s extra chromosome. They’re human, so they haven’t known how to explain this to people who are so caring and are interested in this new little Alaskan. Sarah and Todd want people to share in the joy of this gift I’m giving to the Palin family, and the greater Alaska family. Many people won’t understand… and I understand that. Some will think Trig should not be allowed to be born because they fear a Downs child won’t be considered “perfect” in your world. (But tell me, what do you earthlings consider “perfect” or even “normal” anyway? Have you peeked down any grocery store isle, or school hallway, or into your office lunchroom lately? Or considered the odd celebrities you celebrate as “perfect” on t.v.? Have you noticed I make `em all shapes and sizes? Believe me ,, there is no “perfect”!)

Many people will express sympathy, but you don’t want or need that, because Trig will be a joy. You will have to trust me on this.

I know it will take time to grasp this and come to accept that I only want the best for you, and I only give my best. Remember though: “My ways are not your ways, my thoughts are not your thoughts… for as the heavens are higher than the earth, my ways are higher than yours!”

I wrote that all down for you in the Good Book ! Look it up! You claim that you believe me – now it’s time to live out that belief!

Please look to me as this new challenge and chapter of life unfolds in front of you. I promise to equip you. I won‘t give you anything you can’t handle. I am answering your prayers. Trig can’t wait to meet you. I’m giving you ONLY THE BEST!

Love,
Trig’s Creator , Your Heavenly Father

Fantastic. Sarah Palin will be always in my heart and in my prayers.

Kevin Davis said...

Yeah, that's pretty remarkable. And I don't consider myself a fan or supporter of Palin, but my respect for her has definitely increased.

Ranting Catholic Mom said...

Wow!

elm said...

She sure has a mother's heart. How blessed this world is to share in her love for her child. This is good news in a world where bad news is the normal.

Blackrep said...

I believe this was printed in "Going Rogue." Anyone who is not a Palin fan needs to read that book and be awed by the tough, virtuous and smart woman she is... a fine mother and a great statesperson. That is the truth, and if you don't accept it, maybe you are in a heap of denial that your own American press is utterly corrupt and anti-life to the point of spouting complete insanity about innocent people. It is a hard thing to accept the cold, hard truth that your fellow citizens in the press hate almost all of the worthly things you love. You realize: this is culture war, and the lefties are unchecked by any ethical standards, and they're gunning for you and your family, and the principles you love.

The reaction to this letter by the press at the time? They condemned her for having the audacity to put herself in the place of God. Seriously? Liberalism is truly a mental ilness.

Thank God for the witness of Sarah Palin. Beautiful inside and out.

Compare and contrast:

"I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby," Barack Obama

Run Sarah, Run!
Palin '12

Bingo said...

Wow. That is great stuff. It is interesting, too, how lately she just seems like she's also become much better informed in general. The exact opposite of what Charles Krauthammer was saying.

Run or not run - either way, God bless her and her family.

Rick said...

Wow is right. Ineffable even.

I think Divine providence is at work. To paraphrase the Psalm, "if God is with Sarah, then who can be against her?" And another that says, "The stone which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. The Lord has done this and is marvelous to see." Praise G-d.

Rick said...

Re: "I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby," Barack Obama And the corollary is: "I'll just punish the baby instead - with death."

Quite a contrast: Sarah vs. Barach. It is literally Life vs. Death, Good vs. Evil, Light vs. Darkness.

"You claim that you believe me – now it’s time to live out that belief!"

I love that line. So often, our belief is strong when things are going the way we plan, etc. However, God often calls us to something greater, and more difficult.

Quite insightful!

I wish this letter could be read in every middle and high school class in America---

What an expression of faith!

gedda fan said...

How the darkness hates the light and how the liberals and their lamestream media cohorts have hated this remarkable woman . Katie Couric???? remember her..... Palin is better than the american people deserve

ThereseRIta said...

Hey folks, this whole letter is in her book "Going Rogue". Great read!

Only the most delusional and dysfunctional mind could come up with something like this. What arrogance!

I always thought that Sarah Palin gets a raw deal from the american press; constantly going on about her "childish " approach to politics,foreign relations etc. Compare and contrast her with the other politicians and their general lack of success particularly in the mid-east ,Iraq and Afghanistan and especially on the economic front. So much for the intellectual muppets in the DC political game. I think the woman has a great heart and this letter shows it's in the right place. She is a honey and the American people should give themselves a break and elect her as president. God bless her and her family.

And no one thinks it's odd that she writes this as if she were God herself?

"Anonymous said... Only the most delusional and dysfunctional mind could come up with something like this. What arrogance!"

How is this delusional or disfunctional? How in the world is it 'arrogance' to announce to the family and to friends the very heart of ancient Christian belief on the sacredness and dignity of a human life? Christians were known from the very beginning for cherishing babies, the poor and castoffs of Roman culture and society. And Christians were scorned & hated for that back then, too.

It is only 'delusional', 'arrogance' and 'dysfunctional' to you, I will guess, because you choose to marinate in the perpetual hatred and bitterness of the culture of death instead of the Gospel of Life.

Countervail said... And no one thinks it's odd that she writes this as if she were God herself?


I'm not thinking that Sarah is believing that she is God here. CS Lewis wrote in the 'voice' of a demon, explaining temptations of anti-Christian voices in the world in the Screwtape letters; Sarah writes in the 'voice' of God to explain their Christian values and the preciousness of their yet unborn son. Nothing here contradicts the basics of Christian Faith. Its called 'literary license'.

WTF???

Too bad she is against the medical research that has the best promise to actually cure diseases like Dawn syndrome and autism.

"Too bad she is against the medical research that has the best promise to actually cure diseases like Dawn (sic) syndrome and autism."

How odd for a fan of embryonic stem cell research to be commenting at Creative Minority Report. Contrary to your drive by comment, esc holds no cures for Downs syndrome and autism, that cannot be fully realized from adult stem cell research that Palin and all pro-lifers fully support. At least in this venue you will need to go to some other item on your bash-palin-talking points-list.
