My Daughter

This is my response to this statement. I never would have guessed my child with Ds...

Would open my eyes to so many new & interesting things.

Would be the most curious child I know.

Would be able to learn hundreds of signs, yet give up signing in favor of speech at age 3.

Would be her own advocate so early in life.

Would, at age 4, already insist I leave the bathroom so she can have her privacy.

Would teach me more than any adult ever has.

Would rule our house.

Would be able to read books at such a young age.

Would love the color yellow.

Would bring out this much pride, awe & amazement in me.

Would be my hero.
