As the mother of a 4 year old daughter who was born with Down Syndrome, the biggest and most important thing that I have learned is to live in the moment and not to concentrate too hard on the future. I would miss out on a lot if I constantly thought about the future.

Thank you for your valuable comment.
I was reading CNS STORY: Volunteers promote international adoptions of Down syndrome babies and thought others will find gratifying and ties into our motherhood theme.

I enjoy how Reece's Rainbow serves as a connecting point for Down syndrome children and potential adoptive families. I like how Reece's Rainbow focuses on saving the lives of children who might otherwise face life, or death, in mental institutions abroad. Putting people in institutions hits me very close to my heart. After I had awakened from a 3 month long coma, lost all eyesight, the ability to walk and nearing the end of my 7 month long hospital stay many medical people in this hospital thought my family should ship me away to a convalescent hospital to live out the rest of my life. I am very happy my wife brought me home with her and had faith we could make it together.

Read reading CNS STORY: Volunteers promote international adoptions of Down syndrome babies to see how others are making a difference in the live’s of others.

Do you have questions for others? Any stories or lessons learned to share?
