Today Judah's teacher told me a story about some of his classmates. They have a new student in their class. Apparently the new student was thrown off a bit by Judah and unsure how to react around him. One of the little girls in the class told the new student: "Judah learns different than me and you, he's a bit slower because he has what you might call... Down syndrome."
I'm not a cryer. I'm not trying to be macho, it just takes an act of God to pull tears out of me... but I believe kids with DS are an act of God and stuff like that chokes me up. I couldn't be more proud.
Here's some links to encouraging stories that are circulating the interwebz lately:
