A blog to chronicle raising our daughter with Down syndrome.
Creed of Babies with Down Syndrome
My face may be different, but my feelings the same. I laugh and I cry and take pride in my gains. I was sent here among you to teach and to love as God in the heavens looks down from above. To Him I'm no different, His love knows no bounds; It's those here among you, in cities and towns that judge me by standards that man has imparted, but this family I've choosen will help me get started. For I'm one of the children, so special so few, that came here to learn the same lessons as you. That love is acceptance, it must come from the heart; we all have the same purpose, though not the same start. The Lord gave me life to live and embrace, and I'll do it as you do, but at my own pace. -Unknown
Today when I came home from school, Mom said ask her what her name is... So I said what's your name little girl and to my amazement she signed the letter "a" and said ahhh. Mom has been working with her for weeks now. She has always looked and known when you said her name but now knowing to sign "a" is great!! Now if she will only say "mama". What a great Christmas present that would be!
