I love how our photographer captured his beautiful features and personality. And these pictures are just a tiny piece of how wonderful this little boy is. He’s silly, sweet, funny, determined, feisty and full of personality. I cannot ( and would never want to) imagine him being anyone else but who he is, which is why I wouldn’t change anything about Austin.
It’s easy to look at a picture and think that he or she doesn’t fit society’s idea of what one should look like. I pity those whom are that shallow and superficial. Oh, if you only knew…how thankful I am to God for blessing us with a child that has Down syndrome. And you’ll never understand it unless you’ve experienced having the pleasure of truly knowing an individual with Down syndrome.
It’s no secret that there are extra challenges that come with Down syndrome. We have a crazy schedule that entails therapy 4 times a week, extra appointments with specialists and doctors. Yet, I wouldn’t change a thing. Not. One. Thing. At the end of the day, I'm the one who is blessed to have the privilege of being this little guy’s mom.
If you only knew...
