March 21, World Down Syndrome Day

As we approach World Down Syndrome Day (March 21), a day for celebrating the lives of people with Down Syndrome, I thought I would answer this question for myself today.  What would I tell myself the day that Jack was born now that I know what I know now?

I think I would say:  Don't be afraid.  He is wonderful, funny, loving and amazing.  You will not regret having this child.  He will win your heart.  Don't listen to the "nay-sayers" that tell you what he will never do and trust that God has a bigger plan.  Jack continues to amaze us with what he can do.  He humbles us with his capacity to love and live life to the fullest.

HI Jenn,
We're planning to celebrate World Down syndrome day too :) Hopefully by then we'll all own a hand made Happy World Down Syndrome Day t-shirt and JAM and I are working on a presentation for her classmates. She wants to give them all a balloon and a freezie but we'll see about that :)
