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.
