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, my little girl who could barely walk last summer climbed up her big slide and slid down completely by herself! I am so proud of her. She has come such a long way since last summer. It seems that each day she is becoming more vocal and learning to listen better. Although she does not always listen well, but she is only three and what 3 year old does that!! She is becoming such a big girl and not so much of a baby anymore. I truly believe she is ready to begin preschool in the Fall. I am glad we waited another year. If only she could say more. She tries so hard and makes all kinds of sounds but can't seem to put them together. I just know that one day she will come out with this long sentence and stun us all. Tomorrow I will try and get some video to post!
