We are a group of friends who have come together because we share the common bond of caring for someone who has Trisomy 21. We are here to share therapy tips, medical issues, laughs, accomplishments and yes, even frustrations. We embrace what Trisomy 21 has brought into our lives. We feel that it has taught us to appreciate the true meaning of life. We count our children as blessings! We will fiercely protect them and fight for their lives to be valued just as all other peoples' are. We share our pictures, our stories and our hearts here not only to provide friendship and support for each other, but also in the hopes that others will open their minds and their hearts to our unique children and, in turn, make a better world for everyone.

At first I thought the comment on the blog was about singling Nathanael out because he's "special" and how that doesn't help him with inclusion into the mainstream. I always felt it was just a great way to share with others out there and also for those who contemplate whether or not to keep their "disabled" child...showing them how normal, challenging, wonderful and fun it is.

It was a link to something very I said and it reminded me that those from the outside looking in may have a very different perception than those "in the trenches".
