Hadley's Faith

This morning in General Conference one of the speakers shared a lovely story about a little girl named Hadley. She was born deaf. After an operation and much therapy she was able to speak. One day at the grocery store, Hadley turned around in line and saw, to her surprise, a little boy in a wheelchair. She turned to her Mom, and asked, loudly in her unmodulated new voice, "Why doesn't that little boy have legs!?!" Her Mom told her that Heavenly Father makes all of his children different. Hadley turned to the boy and told him,
"When I was born, I couldn't hear. That makes me special. You're special too. When Jesus comes again, I'll be able to hear, and you will get your legs!"

This story was so touching to me, thanks for reminding me of it. Like you, I can't wait to reread all the talks from this weekend. With three little kids I treasure being able to have all the talks in writing.
