Well it's past midnight and I'm still up. My son Judah is now officially 6 years old today.
|My little man at 2 years old.|
The day he was born (Oct 19, 2005) I was reading the Fort Worth Star Telegram in the lobby at North Hills Hospital. I found an article in the sports section about a Keller High School senior with Down syndrome named Lyndon Laplante. The article was about this young man's dream to score a touchdown for his high school football team and how it became a reality by way of a 99 yard run.
I was really having a hard time with life/faith, etc and this story gave me hope and encouragement in what was a dark hour of my life.
I'm posting this in honor of Down syndrome awareness month and the incredible positive impact having a child with DS has had on me personally. I'm the fortunate one!
Happy birthday Judah! You have brought so much love and joy to our lives! I love you more than ever!
