The power of love

The Girl in the Window

A feral child was discovered in a run-down Florida rental house. But she is coming into her own in the care of an amazing adoptive family.

Don't just read the story, because it doesn't capture the spirit of this remarkable family. Click on the multimedia show. Hear Dani's parents talk about their bond with her. See Dani's smiling face, her joyful demeanor. And listen to her laughter.

I agree with abortion apologists that no child should have ever had to endure the wretched start that Dani had in life. But I don't agree that what she suffered means that her life has no value and is not worth living, that both she and the world would have been better off had her life been cut off before she drew her first breath.

She worked hard to get to that laugh, to those smiles. She is loved and has learned to love in return.

She is an ambulatory testimony to the power of the human spirit, and the power of love.
