Love and Kindness are never wasted

Love and kindness are never wasted.
They always make a difference.
 They bless the one who receives them, and they bless you, the giver.
- Barbara Se Angelis
One of my biggest fear is will people be kind to Laksh? 
Will people understand that just because he might need more time to understand or 
learn something new, doesn’t mean he can’t do that ever. 
I hope that people understand that he is curious about things and if given a chance, 
a true chance he will flourish. I hope people see in him all the mischief that I can and
 all the love that is clearly apparent.
I hope that people see what a talented 2 year old he is and
 that having #downsyndrome is just a part of his being. 
He also has a sense of humor, a contagious smile, a way of making mommy and daddy dance
 on his fingers, a will to learn and learn with zest, 
an ability to make you see world in a whole different way, 
an ability to see good in the world, 
an ability to excel when given proper guidance and motivation,
 a way of moving on from things that are not important in the grand scheme of things,
 an art of fake crying to get his way, and make friends with ease.
When I see him with all things parts attached to his personality, 
Down syndrome kind of stops being this overpowering thing people had made it out to be.
 Again, I don’t mean that it’s not tough at times but well that’s how life is.
 We can’t keep dwelling in that. 
Laksh is so much more that his diagnosis but you can see that only if you truly look.
Always be kind, it’s doesn’t take anything out of you but has the power of making or
 breaking someone.
