More alike than different.


More alike than different.

We have had several comments on how Mason looks like a "regular baby". I know that I was slightly worried before he was born, what he would look like.
Would others think he was cute?
Would he be picture worthy?
Would others oooh & ahhh over him
Would he look so different from "other babies"?

I remember stumbling across a phrase from a Down syndrome website....More Alike than Different. I think God needed me to see that. That phrase has stuck with me ever since. While pregnant with Mason , I was worried about how "Different" he would be. It was a fear of the unknown.

But now we know....We know that Mason is more like other babies , than different. Actually Im starting to think he is BETTER than other babies. Mason is such a sweet , cuddly baby. He loves for people to talk to him and almost never cries. He is just the BEST. I truly feel blessed to have him in our lives.

  4. I know three people with down syndrome; one is 3-4, the second is in his late teens, and the third is in his early twenties. All of them are, yes, 'differant', but all of them are so totally themselves, and so totally PERSONS. They are irriplacable and their families love them so much. I wish every person who has a baby or a grown child with down syndrome could see just exactly how God sees them for one second. They would never doubt again.

I feel blessed to "know" you because you have given me such a greater, more positive outlook on life. Mason is beautiful. Hes is perfect in every single way and he couldnt ask for a better mother. I pray for you and mason quite often, and i put you on the prayer list at my church, God works miracles, and Mason for sure is a strong little boy.
