Homer Tribune Has Moving Story

The Homer Tribune (Alaska) has a moving post related to Gov. Sarah Palin's fifth child -- born with Down sydrome -- and the inspiration that has provided to others.

After Gov. Sarah Palin announced her baby, born this spring, had Down Syndrome, Thompson immediately wrote her a letter of encouragement.

"'The world might work against you,' I told her, 'but this child is a gift,'" Thompson said.

Not long later, Palin wrote a hand-written letter back to Thompson saying, "Thank you, thank you, thank you," and elaborating on her gratitude for the shared messages of hope.
