And I thought... I can't believe that I get to be his mommy. That out of everyone in the world, God chose me. I am so incredibly thankful.
There was a time when I couldn't imagine those words. I thought my ultimate goal would be acceptance. I thought that the people who claimed to be thankful for Down syndrome were lying--even to themselves. But I was so indescribably wrong.
I used to pity people who had loved ones with disabilities. Then after Roo was born, I cringed with the thought of people pitying me.
But now I know the truth: I am the lucky one.
