A Little Something Extra

Friday, August 19, 2011

We interrupt this blog...

... to blog on someone else's blog.  Yes, I guest blogged at Lisa's blog today.

For my Ds peeps... you're right... there's so much more to say.  I should have written about how so many families who have been blessed with a child with a little something extra have decided to add ANOTHER child with designer genes to their family.  I should have written about the horrible conditions in which children in some other countries live when they are abandoned due to the fact that they have Down syndrome.  I could have written about the many successful young adults I've met who jump into life with confidence and succeed.  I could have shared more about therapy opportunities, medical advances, etc.  And I could have written about the marvelous family (YOU!) I've met, either in real life or here in the blogosphere or on Facebook, and the support we have found through you.

I wrote quickly.  And probably missed some opportunities.  But I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to write something that will be read primarily by moms (and dads) who are not blessed with the gift of a child with Down syndrome.
