There have been times sitting through tough meetings, or the year David was in treatment, or exhausting discipline phases where I felt like I was walking in the valley. The moment the doctors first uttered the words Down syndrome to me on his birth day, I felt God's peace and presence so strongly. I have never ever doubted God's plan to bless us with a child with an extra chromosome.
This week my heart has been full seeing the blessing that comes when your child is treated like just another child. David has been blessed with being in inclusion in our public schools since Pre-K. He has been in regular classes with the support of our awesome special educators within the regular classroom setting.
I actually got a picture of his basket he made! He was so proud of himself and I could barely contain my joy! Considering he has a disability and was out of "the loop" for a year during chemo and radiation, God has continued to bless his life with sweet friends, meaningful and appropriate activities, and JOY! I was such a proud Momma this weekend!
