DEAR ABBY: Someone wrote asking you if they should send a gift or a card of "congratulations" to a mother who has given birth to a Mongoloid child. Thank you for saying: "By all means, yes. To a mother, a child is a child." I know your advice was sound because I had a Mongoloid Mongoloid son. Friends called. They stopped by. They even gave me a surprise baby shower when he was a month old. Here is the message on one card which meant so much to me: "God gave this child to you to guide, To love, to walk thru Ufe beside. A little child so full of charms, To fill a pair of loving arms. God picked you out because he knew How safe His child would be with you" God bless friends like that. MRS. C. B., BEACON, N. Y.
