World Down Syndrome Day

Dear readers,

Since Laksh came into our lives, so many things have happened, so many emotions have been felt and so many minds have been changed. As many of you might know, we received a birth diagnosis when Laksh was born and took some time to process the whole thing. But once all the feelings of being cheated on, and loss of the idea of a perfect baby were done with, I started relishing the love filled smiles that I wake up to every morning. Having a baby with special needs just makes us more appreciative of the things we would have otherwise taken for granted. Seeing your baby work hard to do things that typically growing babies do effortlessly and then giving you the best smile once they accomplish it, is worth everything. And, trust me, they will accomplish it, it might just take them a little longer at times.

We are lucky enough to have some amazing group of people we call family and friends that have always been supportive and encouraging. Being surrounded by people that love you for who you are and not what labels think you should be, is the best feeling. Thank you everyone for taking the time out to send us photographs wearing your coolest, funnest and most colorful socks to honor my precious baby and others like him. We are so grateful and appreciative of the love. You guys made our first #worlddownsyndromeday so special. Cheers. Keep loving and be kind.
