Roses are Red
Violets are Blue
Worry not mama
The world loves Lulu.
“Every parent wants to know that their child will have friends and find love…. The truth is that regardless of how many chromosomes one has, you will get your heart broken and you will fall in love and you will have that love returned. I will forever stand beside her, supporting her and loving her through all the trials and tribulations life throws at us.”
I wrote that a year ago. In this last year I have bore witness to many amazing things. None have been so powerful as watching how freely Lily expresses herself. She smiles with her whole body. When she is sad, the whole room weeps, when she is happy, she lifts every ones mood. And when she hugs you, you feel like the most special person in the world.
Lily has friends. Correction, Lily has lots of friends. She has friends with disabilities and friends without. She helps care for babies (like her brother), she plays games with friends her age and is even welcomed by kids much older than her to join their activities.
Lily has friends. Lily is loved.
Her road will be different and her future uncertain, but Lily IS loved.
