Couple Adopts Physically Disabled Baby Others Called a “Curse”

Not only is this a story about an unwanted child finding a family, but this is also an indictment of India and other 3rd world countries, that looks at children with deformities as a “curse” and something that needs to die. I used to work with a young lady from India, who told me that is very common and also expected to have a child like Adam and to leave him in the corner to die, or to kill him outright because of his deformities. She even asked me why we kept my brother who is mentally disabled. She and others from India and Eastern Europe don’t understand the grace and the responsibility one has to a child that God gives you.
