I found an article that made me smile. It gives me so much hope for the future. It made me realize, that even though there are many people who will not accept Carly for who she is; a child born with Down syndrome. There are so many people who will accept her. People will value her as a person. So what if not everybody does. For each person who looks down on Carly, there will be that many more who will not.
There is a reason that Carly was born with Down syndrome. I don't know that reason. I may never know the reason. But that big guy upstairs knows. God has a plan. Whether it's to teach others the value of a particular person. Make a family more appreciative. Or prove to families that they can in fact, over come various obstacles. I do not believe that having a child born with Down syndrome is a curse. It's a blessing. I've always known that. But stories like the following, click here, are absolute proof!
Sometimes I tend to get off track with my ability to actually see what's important, what matters and what doesn't. Easily done when someone is constantly throwing curve balls at you. But when I read stories like this, I for one believes that eventually, everything is going to be alright.
