Both Agreements and DisagreementsMany times when an infant is born with what you on earth call a deformity, or a malfunction of some part of its systems or organs, the infant has chosen to go through those experiences because it was challenges that they were to experience and lessons even as an infant that they were to learn that would help them in a future long-term life on earth.

They choose to care for those souls by allowing them, the handicapped children, to live this life as they wished-less involved in the ordinary, everyday functions of life. It is a unique opportunity for the handicapped child, and it is an opportunity for the parent to show love. These agreements are made out of love.
