One of the criticisms of Sarah Palin currently making the rounds is that she should be a stay-at-home mom, caring for her special-needs child, instead of being a career woman.
But what are the special needs of a child with Down syndrome? As an illustration, consider the range of services provided by The Center for Down Syndrome at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital:
• Clinical geneticists
• Genetic counselors
• Child development specialists
• Social workers
• Physical therapists
• Occupational therapists
Now ask yourself, in which type of setting is Trig most likely to receive the best care available:
1. In the care of a stay-at-home mom, on a single income, in the Alaskan Bush?
2. In the care of parents, one of whom is a Governor, Vice President, or President?
Does anyone doubt that if Sarah Palin becomes the next Vice President, her family (including Trig) will have access to world class medical care?
