I've written often that there are clear 'memes' in our society that some who want euthanasia and/or assisted suicide available aren't really afraid of how they might die but, rather, they fear becoming like people with disabilities.
I can't imagine how people who live with disabilities feel when they recognise this kind of thinking in their midst, but raising a child with a disability, Anne and I have an abiding concern for Joseph's future.
That's why I was pleased to finally meet Trish and Glenn Mowbray and three of their sons at the World Congress of Families in Sydney last month. I had corresponded with Trish for sometime ithout the opportunity to meet until then.
Their story provides a wonderful example of hope!
