Sarah Palin’s email to her family from God…

You've probably heard in the news that they are going through all of Sarah Palin's emails and letting the world see them.  You might not have heard about this one.  A few years ago Sarah found out from her doctor that her unborn baby was going to have "downs syndrome" she wrote this email to her family and friends.  It is powerful as she writes it from God's point of view.


To the Sisters, Brother, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and friends of Trig Paxson Van Palin (or whatever you end up naming him!)


I am blessing you with this surprise baby because I only want the best for you. I've heard your prayers that this baby will be happy and

healthy, and I've answered them because I only want the best for you!


I heard your heart when you hinted that another boy would fit best in the Palin family, to round it out and complete that starting five

line-up. Though another girl would be so nice, you didn't think you could ask for what you REALLY wanted, but I knew, so I gave you a boy because I only want the best for you!


Then, I put the idea in your hearts that his name should be "Trig", because it's so fitting, with two Norse meanings: "True" and "Brave



Then, finally, I let Trig's mom and dad find out before he was born that this little boy will truly be a GIFT. They were told in early

tests that Trig may provide more challenges, and more joy, than what they ever may have imagined or ever asked for. At first the news seemed unreal and sad and confusing. But I gave Trig's mom and dad lots of time to think about it because they needed lots of time to understand that everything will be OK, in fact, everything will be great, because I only want the best for you!


I've given Trig's mom and dad peace and joy as they wait to meet their new son. I gave them a happy anticipation because they asked me for that. I'll give all of you the same happy anticipation and strength to deal with Trig's challenges, but I won't impose on you...


This new person in your life can help everyone put things in perspective and bind us together and get everyone focused on what

really matters.


The baby will expand your world and let you see and feel things you haven't experienced yet. He'll show you what "true, brave victory" really means as those who love him will think less about self and focus less on what the world tells you is "normal" or "perfect". You will grow and be blessed with greater understanding that will be born along with Trig.


Every child is created special, with awesome purpose and amazing potential. Children are the most precious and promising ingredient in

this mixed up world you live in down there on earth. Trig is no different, except he has one extra chromosome. Doctors call it "Down's Syndrome", and Downs kids have challenges, but can bring you much delight and more love than you can ever imagine! Just wait and

see, let me prove this, because I only want the best for you!


Some of the rest of the world may not want him, but take comfort in that because the world will not compete for him. Take care of him and

he will always be yours!


Trig's mom and dad don't want people to focus on the baby's extra chromosome. They're human, so they haven't known how to explain this to people who are so caring and are interested in this new little Alaskan. Sarah and Todd want people to share in the joy of this gift I'm giving

to the Palin family, and the greater Alaska family. Many people won't understand... and I understand that. Some will think Trig should not be allowed to be born because they fear a Downs child won't be considered "perfect" in your world. (But tell me, what do you earthlings consider "perfect" or even "normal" anyway? Have you peeked down any grocery store isle, or school hallway, or into your office

lunchroom lately? Or considered the odd celebrities you celebrate as "perfect" on t.v.? Have you noticed I make 'em all shapes and sizes?

Believe me, there is no "perfect"!)


Many people will express sympathy, but you don't want or need that, because Trig will be a joy. You will have to trust me on this.


I know it will take time to grasp this and come to accept that I only want the best for you, and I only give my best. Remember though: "My

ways are not your ways, my thoughts are not your thoughts... for as the heavens are higher than the earth, my ways are higher than yours!"


I wrote that all down for you in the Good Book! Look it up! You claim that you believe me – now it's time to live out that belief!


Trig's Creator, Your Heavenly Father

I have not been following the news, so I am curious...did Sarah Palin approve the 'outing' of all her emails? It seems as if society feels entitled to the lives of everyone around them...I wonder why? Why do we feel it is our right to post things about people that we truely don't know?
This is a beautiful email that I am sure Sarah wrote with much heart. I hope that people can take this email and understand it and not use it to slander a very tender moment.
