I'M NOT A FIGHTER BUT TODAY THE MOMMA BEAR TOOK OVER

There are days when I hate Down Syndrome, there are days when I just want a normal life, there are days when I just want my daughter to walk, to talk to me, to act like a typical almost 2 year old.  When I realized yesterday I was going to have to fight for services for my child that came so easily to us in New York. I was infuriated. I was so angry.  I fought for her and I won.  I am so happy I didn't just take it. I am happy that I spoke for her. I stood up for her and she will receive what she needs. I have a feeling it will be a fight for the rest of her life to get the things she needs and deserves.
