Can it be?

"Yes, its ME!"

“Yes, it’s ME!!

There are a lot of words the doctors used when they told us about Yirmiyahu’s Trisomy 21 diagnosis.

Most of them were sad.  And depressing.  And limiting.

There wasn’t one word that intimated to how our lives would be enriched.  Not one hint that he would be smart, capable and personable.

There was just one thing I remember them saying that was accurate:  “How your child develops depends very much on how much you invest in him.”

Do you know what it means to invest in your child?

Love him as every other child.

Did we ever guess what joy was going to become a daily part of our life when this little boy was born?

Even if they had told us we wouldn’t have believed them.

Sometimes words are just inadequate.
