OK, this isn’t my typical fare, I’ll admit. Someday I’ll get up the guts to post “Pink Slip”. (Curious? it’s on YouTube.) Tonight, here is something I found on a blog run by a woman named Jessica. Her daughter, Sophia, is a little older than my Sophie, and Jessica had some sage advice (you can see it in the comments on my micro-chip post) she left on Girl in a Party Hat. I checked out her blog, which is lovely, and watched this.
(If you’re looking for a good cry…..)
(I watched it a second time with Annabelle. One of the people featured appears to be an adult.
“Oh, you can have Down syndrome when you’re an adult?” she asked.
“So Sophie will always have problems?”
“Well, yes, some.”
“Oh. I’m glad I don’t have Down syndrome. I speak PERFECTLY.”
“But I think Sophie likes Down syndrome.”
“Why do you think that?”
“Because she has fun.”)
