‘A Down’s Syndrome baby will expand your world’: How Sarah Palin imagined God talking to her

June 13th, 2011 by Staff

www.dailymail.co.uk – Sarah Palin imagined God talking to her in a deeply touching email she wrote two weeks before her fifth child, Trig, was born with Down’s Syndrome, it was revealed today.

The poignant message to family and friends, included in 25,000 pages of her private emails made public on Friday, may alter the way the former Governor of Alaska is viewed by the American public.

In April 2008, two weeks before Trig was born with Down’s Syndrome, Mrs Palin sent the email to her friends and family from her official government account.

In the touching message, Mrs Palin writes from the voice of God, as ‘Trig’s creator, your heavenly father’.

She addresses the ‘unreal, sad and confusing’ news that her soon-to-be born child will have Down’s Syndrome.

The letter’s existence had previously known, but only very brief excerpts had been made public.

Writing as God, Mrs Palin wrote, ‘I let Trig’s mom have an exceptionally comfortable pregnancy so she could enjoy every minute of it…’

She wrote, ‘Trig’s mom and dad’ were told early by doctors that the child ‘may provide more challenges and more joy than what they ever may have imagined or ever asked for.

‘This new person in your life can help everyone put things in perspective… 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’.

The letter also makes unlikely conspiracy theories that have long been circulating on blogs that Trig was actually born to Mrs Palin’s unwed daughter Bristol.
