I don’t have a big speech prepared. All I know is that today stood out to me. I looked at countless photos of beautiful babies, took pictures of my own beautiful baby, and told him over and over again how he is going to change this world. He’s already touched hundreds of lives and the boy isn’t even a year old yet. And it’s not just him. A few months ago I joined a support group of moms who have extra chromosomed cuties and already off the bat I could tell that the way their babies have touched peoples lives is surely evident as well. My prayer is that the world accepts my son and all of these amazing children and he will no longer stand out as different or disabled, but perfectly abled, and capable of doing life-changing things. Though this has been a difficult journey, my heart is on cloud nine. August is absolutely perfect in my eyes.
“I wouldn’t change my child for the world, but I would change the world for my child.”
Happy World Down Syndrome Day, everyone! This is a happy day indeed.
