National Down Syndrome Day

                                                ~ Beauty is in the Eyes of the Beholder ~



He was in love with Palmer before he was born. Each time I talked to  Uncle Gary on the phone, and without fail, he would ask if Palmer was still in my tummy or in Heaven with his mommy. This question was always followed by a request to hold Palmer. This look on his face I will never forget... it was a moment of peace and clarity in a chaotic setting. So proud and so in love with a baby he accepted unconditionally. Happy National Down Syndrome Day. I couldn't imagine life without the blessing of Uncle Gary.
