Join the Club

In November of last year, I became a member of an exclusive club, one I never wanted to join. 

I am a parent of a child with Down syndrome.  

And you know what?  There are some pretty wonderful people and some amazingly awesome kids in this club.  I can't downplay the disability, and I can't imagine what our lives will look like a year from now, 5 years from now, or 20 years from now.  But I know that I love my son and my heart aches to think of life without him.  If I had it to do again, knowing what I know now, I'd choose to join the club. 

3 months old!
