Creed for Babies With Down Syndrome

My face may be different, but my feelings the same.

I laugh and I cry and take pride in my gains.

I was sent here among you to teach you to love as God in the heavens looks down from above.

To Him, I'm no different. His love knows no bounds;

It's those here among you in cities and towns that judge me by standards that man has imparted,

But this family I've chosen will help me get started.

For I'm one of the children so special and few that came here to learn the same lessons as you.

That love is acceptance, it must come from the heart;

We all have the same purpose, though not the same start.

The Lord gave me life to live and embrace, and I'll do it as you do? But at my own pace.

As I am getting back into blogging I wanted to reshare this.
