The honorable Judge Frank Caprio of Caught In Providence fame believes there’s a “special place in Heaven” for parents blessed with children facing special needs. And what he says is powerful!

Parenting is one of life's biggest blessings. There is no feeling like opening your heart and home to a child, either through birth or adoption. Children add so much joy, love and happiness to life.

But like everything else in life, worthwhile things are also difficult. The actions, words and lessons children learn from their parents will impact the rest of their lives. There are massive responsibilities that come with being a parent. That's especially true if the Lord blesses a couple with a child with special needs.

A Special Place In Heaven

In a clip posted on YouTube, Judge Frank Caprio said parents who have been blessed with children with special needs have been set apart in the eyes of God. In fact, he believes that heaven has a "special place" for those who care for and love children with special needs.

"There's a special place in heaven for parents who are raising children with special needs," the judge said. "Raising any child is challenging. Parenting a child with special needs will teach you just how strong you really are. It requires incredible tenacity, patience, resourcefulness and an unwavering commitment to never-ending love."

What a beautiful sentiment from the kind, loving and gracious judge about life, parenting and children with special needs.

Yes, that child may require more time, attention and assistance than other children. But they are still just as special and loved in the eyes of the Lord, and as Judge Frank Caprio believes, so are that child's parents.
