THIS glass is Half FULL!
Yesterday I had a friend tell me how lucky Boston was - no, not because he has Down Syndrome but because from the beginning I have viewed every teeny tiny milestone as a HUGE success (and greeted them each with a standing ovation!) When you experience Rett Syndrome first, well, Down Syndrome seems "easy." Now - don't get me wrong (and PLEASE to all my amazing fellow DS mommies - you rock!) I wish I were not dealing with DS and everything that will come along with it for Boston BUT....what I mean is that watching Brooklyn loose all of her skills - I learned to be cheerful with each blessing that comes. along. I think that most moms have to work up to where I am - mourning the loss of what might have been upon receiving the diagnosis of Down Syndrome. Of course, I too dealt with that loss - but from the beginning have looked at things as what he CAN do or WILL do SOON. If anything I took the pressure off of myself and him really. So, in short. THIS glass is half FULL - thank you for the reminder ;)
