Great news! Next to having a happy family, my greatest dream has been to be a Catholic author. This blog has been a step in that direction, as have the 9 letters to the editor I have had published this year, mostly in The National Catholic Register, my favorite newspaper. Now their sister publication, "Faith and Family" magazine has asked me to write an article on the birth of my special daughter, Christina Maria, who has Down Syndrome.Thank you, Lord Jesus, for this dream come true! Help me to bring souls to You by my writing, and always use my talent for Your greater glory! Deo gratias!
