I hope  you find this as inspiring and heartwarming as I did. I know this person very well. 🙂  You’ll be getting my version of the same story in the future. It’s just taken a long time to write it. I am publishing this to “theworminmyapple.com” as well.

Faith, Hope, and Love

Two years ago yesterday Down syndrome became my reality.

Two years ago today I sat in this same hospital where I now sit. Scared.

Two years ago today I watched as doctors performed an echo-cardiogram on my son who was less than 24 hours old.

Two years ago today I ran into a young man with Down syndrome sweeping the floors of the maternity ward. Scared for my son’s future.

Two years ago today my then dreams and hopes turned to fears.

Two years ago today I knew one thing. I loved my son.

Today Down syndrome is just another part of my life.

Today I sit in the same hospital. Happy. Smiling.

Today I’m thankful for my son’s health.

Today I saw several young people with Down syndrome. Working. Enjoying lunch. Enjoying each others company. No longer scared for my son’s future.

Today my fears have turned to hope.

Today I know much more.

Today one thing remains from two years ago today: my love for my son.

“And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” -1 Corinthians 13:13
