Thirst

, by Willem Kuypers // Jean Vanier English

People with intellectual disabilities are so spontaneous and true! They attract and awaken the heart. Their thirst for friendship, love and communion leaves no one indifferent. Either you harden your heart to their cry and reject them, or you open your heart and enter into a relationship built on trust, simple, tender gestures and few words.
