I'm continuing to blog in the "31 for 21" challenge to raise awareness about Down syndrome this month. When our daughter was born we were told that we would get tired of hearing the stereotype "They're so sweet and loving!" But you know, sweet and loving is not a bad way to be, and when mostly happy goes along with it, a mom can't really complain. Maybe that's why, after a few months of sadness for what might have been, I fairly quickly came to the point of seeing her birth as one of the best things that ever happened to me, and I haven't looked back much. This picture reminds me of those busy days of therapy, when we fitted her booster chair with duct-taped rolled-up magazines so she couldn't slump over.
