What Is Special & Determined?

The eyes are the windows to the soul. If you see what I see, then you see a beautiful, loving, special and determined little boy.

He’s special not because of his “designer” genes as we like to call them, but because of his unconditional and selfless love for people. He truly has a magnetic and loving personality, and you can see it shine through his eyes.

He is determined to make our lives and the lives of those he meets better. He teaches us to love and to have faith that all things are possible.

He is making his mark on our community by spreading awareness, teaching that inclusion and acceptance of children with Down Syndrome is “cool”, and I am determined to give him the voice and platform to do that.

This blog is to give a window into the beauty of Down syndrome and to share our everyday life with all its special challenges. I look to share my perspective of why being a mother of child with special needs is truly a blessing! I also share product reviews, special needs resources and parenting tips.
