I'm participating in my first ever blog hop! This one is a community project of Down syndrome blogs and the T21 Writer's Alliance.
Sometimes Down syndrome just sucks. I used to be afraid to voice that opinion, but I have come to realize it's the truth for me and it's okay to say. I love my son with all my heart and that is why it's difficult to see him struggle with medical issues and development. I will have to fight hard for him and his future. I know it will always be this way and that just stinks.
Enjoy your baby! We are pretty new to this whole thing so I don't have a bucket of tips yet, but this is a big one I can give. A baby is just that...a baby. They need you to feed them, hold them, love on them and play with them. Don't worry about all that other stuff you can't control right now. Spend time connecting with your child. Treat them just like you would any of your other children. I wish I would have taken my own advice 8 months ago. I spent too much time worrying and crying and now I can't get that time back. So again, enjoy your baby!
