Today Julian and I were reminiscing about the past year. It is so clear to see things in retrospect. When I was pregnant and we were still in the process of trying to decide if we should keep the baby...we got a couple of signs that helped with the decision.
During the final week when we were deciding what to do these events occurred. My sister had a little girl come on the swing next to her daughter at the park, the girl had down syndrome. Within the span of another day or two my sister encountered another child with down syndrome . Then the ultimate sign was that while my husband and my sister were at a local festival they sat down at a table to eat something. While sitting at the table, a teenage boy with down syndrome sat right next to my husband. He casually sat there eating french fries. My sister and my husband were in awe. We couldn't believe that this was all happening within a week......Isn't this amazing considering that my sister or husband never really met anyone with down syndrome before I was pregnant with Wysdom.
It still gives me goosebumps when I think about it. I have to believe that they were guiding us on a path to acceptance. Ask for guidance or a sign and you will surely get one......that's the magic of the universe. Now it's a little more than a year later and we couldn't imagine our lives without Wysdom, our little chubby man.
