"We weren’t expecting it. We were expecting him to be a little chubby, or have big ears, or be a little funny looking, but we weren’t expecting him to have Down syndrome. They had been telling us that all the tests were normal. We were devastated at first, but we decided to take the bull by the horns. And it actually brought us closer together. We’d been growing a little apart before he was born, but he gave us a common goal to focus on. We spent two months at the hospital together when he got pneumonia. And he’s turned out to be a blessing. There’s no evil in him. He’s either happy, or sad, or mad, but he never conceals and always expresses just how he feels."
