I haven't been posting about Down syndrome on my blog this month but I have shared things on facebook. The month is wrapping up and I wanted to share this post with you:
Today will be my last post about Down syndrome for the month. But I won't stop advocating for my son, not ever. If I could change anything about Down syndrome it wouldn't be to change Bennett and make him like all other "typically developing" kids. Nope, we like him just the way he is. But it would be to change how the world views him. How people perceive the diagnosis of Down syndrome, how people treat people with Down syndrome, how people make fun and say hurtful things. I would change it so that everyone would see Bennett how we see him. And I hope by advocating for him others will come to see that.
Thanks to all our amazing friends and family who do see Bennett the way we see him and love him for just being Bennett.
