The Down Syndrome Creed

This morning while I was doing my hair Cameron was being an awesome big brother and was playing with his brother. As I listened I heard Cameron singing ‘I love you, baby I love you. Just the way you are. My heart was so full of joy because it was something that came straight from his heart.

Here. is one of my favorite poems that I came across when I was pregnant with Evan.

The Down Syndrome Creed
My face may be different
But my feelings the same
I laugh and I cry
And I take pride in my gains
I was sent here among you
To teach you to love
As God in the heavens
Looks down from above
To Him I am no different
His love knows no bounds
It’s those here among you
In cities and towns
That judge me by standards
That man has imparted
But this family I’ve chosen
Will help me get started
For I’m one of the children
So special and few
That came here to learn
The same lessons as you
That love is acceptance
It comes from the heart
We all have the same purpose
Though not from the start
The Lord gave me life
To live and embrace
And I’ll do it as you do
But at my own pace
