I wish more people would stop assuming the worst at the diagnosis, and instead realize the possibilities. In the meantime, I will pray that my own four with Down Syndrome will touch someone's life in a special way this month.
To show how "typical" a little child with Down Syndrome can be, here are some pictures from yesterday's schooling efforts here in the Lindsay household. It is "D" week, so they drew pictures of Dad. Later, I needed to peel and cook some apples, so the kids sat at the table to paint while I did my work. How many seven and eight year olds don't enjoy drawing and painting?
Isn't Dad handsome?
This picture of Micah is one of the cutest I've ever gotten!
