This is just a thought I had while quietly watching Maddox sleep next to me this morning. Even though there are moments when I think that she is not quite what I expected, deep down I know that someday she will truly be more than I ever expected....That is comforting.

I have a wonderful son with DS. He is 14 now, and I know how you felt when she was born. I was 20 years old when I had him and I didn't know that he had Down's till after the birth. When he was born nothing looked different to me because we are asian. I remember the doctor coming in not long after he was born to tell me he had DS. He was looking at the floor when he entered and then looked up at us and seen all asains and then he had to rethink what he was gonna say.
Unfortunately my son was born with a congenital heart defect and had to have surgery when he was 9 months old, but he is healthy now. I have 2 other children, one older and one younger that my 14 year old son. I have always told them that God gave him to us cause he thought that we deserved such a special and precious person in our lives and that God loved him so much that he gave him and extra chromosome to show how special he is and how special he is going to be to us in our lives. It took me a little bit to see that myself but I live by that everyday and I do fight for him and his rights everyday.
I will say that I have had several problems with his school but I will tell you, I wouldn't change it for the world, cause he showed me how to fight, how to love, and how I want to live. Funny thing is he has shown me how to be a better person and how to be a better mother. I always teach him right from wrong and all the manners I was taught, I bring him up like I was, never treating him differently from my other two, but I never knew how much a child could teach there own parent. It's funny how that happens sometimes.
