On a particularly difficult day with my son with Down syndrome, I had cause to ask myself, why I, a perfectionist, had been given such an imperfect child. The reply came swiftly to my heart and has never left: he is not the imperfect one. The longer I am on this journey with a child with special needs, the more I realize that my son has more to teach me about life and living, than I could ever teach him. Life is not a race through milestones. It isn’t about title or rank or circumstance. It isn’t a survival of the fittest. It’s about love. And it is about what we become. My son is already who he is supposed to be, and he teaches me every day about who I am supposed to be. I hope to live worthy of being this perfect little boy’s mother. ©
