As Bennett gets older I find it less important for me to tell others about the nitty gritty facts of Down syndrome. I think what I really want for people to understand is that Bennett is a little boy first. I know most people probably see Down syndrome as soon as they see him but I want it to stop right there. I want people to realize that what he was born with doesn't define him and that it doesn't limit what he can do. I want others to know that we simply want acceptance for our son. We want him treated like everyone else. If people would open their eyes and see past the differences they would welcome a whole new level of joy into their lives.
