I understand. I am surprised every morning when I wake up that that little angel in the bassinet belongs to me. She's gorgeous....and more amazing than anything I have ever seen!!!

OMG, funny you would post this because as I was driving home earlier and looking in the rear view mirror at my son, Tyler, who is 4 yrs old, I too was thinking the same thing. He is so cute and I am always amazed at the incredible feeling of love that washes over me when I look at him sometimes!!!~ ♥

Everything you said is so true. My son has so much love to give. He lives and breaths for affection. Jack loves nothing more then hugging and kissing me. Ive never felt so much love come from one person before. He is amazing. I think I get hurt when people pay so much attention to him having down syndrome when really I want them to understand that he is sick with a terminal heart defect. Thats whats important. That is what we are faced with. His down syndrome is realy a blessing a part of him I love dearly. People forget about his bad heart and only see his down syndrome. He is Jack a beautiful child facing a life threatening illness. This is what they should be concerned about. Not his ds

My guess is that those who feel sorry for you, don't really understand the similarities between your son & their children. They only see the differences. They don't understand that at some point in their lives, all children may encounter difficulties, whether they have a "syndrome" or not. They don't realize that you have watched your beautiful child from the beginning, just like they have watched theirs and the love you have for your child isn't any different than theirs,really. They haven't had the wonderful opportunity to be loved by someone with down syndrome.
I say, keep feeling lucky, enjoy, and take every opportunity to share your child with others so that they can begin to see the similarities. Maybe they'll start to feel jealous ;)
