I have to speak out on the topic of Down syndrome, because I think a ton of people are still living in the past with this diagnosis. I have read and researched for over a year since my precious child has arrived.
To be prenatally diagnosed, to be offered the option of abortion, to wait months and months, I had no clue what to expect.
The wondering, the waiting and then the arrival was a lot to deal with, but little did I know that this was the best thing that ever happened to me.
There is no down side of this syndrome. For us, the birth of this wonderous child has taught life lessons which keep coming daily. I want the people who have run away from me because maybe they didn’t know what to say to know they are totally missing out.
Down syndrome no longer carries the stigma that it did many years ago. Please don’t come up to me and say you are so sorry, which recently happened and you know who you are. I am not sorry, I am thrilled. And if I could clone this baby, I would in a second.
Let’s all strive to learn a little more before we judge Down syndrome. This is 2013, there are so many opportunities waiting for my child, and I thank God daily for this blessing.
Helping less fortunate isn’t Obama’s style
I bet everyone on welfare was really angry when Barack Obama was elected president. One of the first things he did was cancel Bill Clinton’s Work for Welfare program.
I bet they were really disappointed because that was the only way some of them could learn a skill to get a job or do some meaningful type of work that gives people fulfillment and hope in their lives. Maybe even breaking the cycle of poverty.
I bet they were really anticipating waking up early every day and meeting with a group of their peers to learn a new skill or do public service for your community.
Good decision, President Obama.
Who should punish abortionists?
If the leaders of the United States think we need to police the world and punish those who kill their children, then who should punish us for killing our children through abortion?
