"It is all very simple. Just believe." These are the words from the mama of a lovely young woman with Down syndrome who has surpassed so many of her early expectations.
Reading her words, I was struck again by something that I found so powerful just a few short months ago:
"Your hopes must be bigger than your fears."
Hopes don't have to be outlined into specific skill-sets. Dreams don't have to be so specific that you will shatter if every detail is not realized.
Believing in your child is a simple thing. A powerful thing. The truest expression of our absolute love.
And that, I can do.
