People Who Know
Today I was given a gift, and I took it, unwrapped it and thanked God for it. I also need to thank someone I once knew in High School, I was introduced to her cousins who have a son with Down Syndrome, it was a wonderful meeting. Oh but the story doesn't end there, there's more, so pay attention. I met a girl in the dentist office and I had my daughter with me, we got to talking and turns out she has a son with Down Syndrome who, get this was born the day before my daughter, same year, crazy right? Oh but wait it gets better, turns out she was born in the same year I was, the day before me. So I believe somehow God, the universe whatever you want to call it brought us together. Oh but wait there's more, turns out the cousins of the girl I went High School with and the girl I met in the dentist also know each other. Okay, okay you can all chime in now "It's a small world after all, it's a small small world."
Anyway to make a long story short, I am thrilled to have found friends for myself and my daughter, it was a wonderful day. Today starts Down Syndrome Awareness month, if you have a child with Down Syndrome, I urge you to reach out to your local Down Syndrome group or if people are willing to introduce you to people who are going through a similar situation, take them up on it, we can all use support, we can all use a shoulder to lean on.
