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
Okay so I hope someone out there reads my blog and responds with some good advice. Abbi is way behind in her speech development which I know is normal, but my biggest concern is that she has actually regressed. She has completely stopped saying things she used to be able to say and has even forgotten signs she used to know. She knew all of her colors and now won't tell us any of them. Has anyone else out there had any of these problems with their child??
