Daddy: What she has taught me. What I have learned about myself and how it has brought out the best in me. I am a stronger person now. I've learned to let go and trust God. I've learned a lot of life lessons in the last year.
Grammy: #1 I actually like the uniqueness- our other kids can just sort of skate by in our imaginations early on as typical, but Reagan was unique from the start.
#2 the challenge of learning something new and putting out to help her get where she can do all she can--makes me pay better attention
#3 I like the "reason" to play with her more than normal
#4 I just see "special" as good
Auntie Megan: The sweet faces and the spirit they have.
Me: I love the passion she has brought to my life. I live fuller, love more deeply and see more color in the world because of one tiny extra chromosome.
And one more bonus interview just to make you smile. When I asked (4 year old) Clarisse what she loved about her sister..."she's got Down syndrome" well baby what do you like about her Down syndrome? "she was born" I guess she's just happy to have such a cute baby sister. :)
Tell me what you love about Reagan, Down syndrome, or both and I'll add it to a grand finale list later this month.
