When I went to find material to do a thesis online for the Antiochian House of Studies, there was no such thing. With the recommendation of my thesis advisor, an Orthodox Priest (Fr. Ted Pulcini) and with the blessing of His Grace Bishop Thomas I developed the weblog Arms Open Wide: Orthodox Christian Disability Resources. armsopenwide.wordpress.com It does not bring the definitive Orthodox word on the matter, but the matter is addressed somewhat extensively; I've made an effort for the last 2.5 years to scour the Internet for resources around the Orthodox Christian world on disability, including mental illness and developmental disability. And I continue to do so.

A form of psychic cancer, how to solve it? Isn't there anything I can do? recently these questions keep boring me......

I am deeply moved by God's creation, O give thanks unto the LORD!
