The day he was born, deep in my gut when I saw him placed on the table, some small something for a split second didn't seem right. This is the first time I have expressed this; I dispelled it, and life went on. Then, a week later, the "train wrecked" and I found out he had DS. I was very upset! I asked WHY?
Looking back, I was upset not that my son has DS, but for feeling sorry for myself. The good news is, IT didn't last long! I know that God doesn't make mistakes and was soon over that struggle. I look at him and all I see is an "Angel". "Angels" are different, and I am blessed to have four sons, all different in their own ways!
OK : Back to the question? WHY? I looked at him and instantly it came to me! It came to me through the same question the disciples asked Jesus when they came upon a blind man and asked, " Lord, was it the father's sins or the mother's sins that caused this person to be blind? WHY? "
The answer is unmistakable! Jesus said, "It is neither, this child was born this way to allow my Father's glory to be Shown!" That is WHY!
