Congratulations to The Times for highlighting the inspiring story of Dorothy and Bob De Bolt (Sept. 14). Their dedication in adopting 13 children, many of them physically and mentally handicapped, after raising six of their own, is incredible.
The De Bolts have led a successful life in the true sense of the word. Our increasingly narcissistic society desperately needs true, dramatic examples of selfless love of neighbor. And what a refreshing contrast your report was to the inevitable press details of child, drug and alcohol abuse, gang violence, etc.
Cheers to the De Bolts and to The Times!
