What worried you?

The Ailts Family blog posted their favorite Baby Center post.

When we found out about Little M's diagnosis there was a whole list of worries. My first and foremost worry was that she wouldn't be accepted. Boy was I wrong...

Just look at all these people that walked for her and for Down Syndrome at last year's Buddy Walk in MI.

My little girl is loved, watched over, and accepted. I try to surround her by people that speak to her with kindness, are patient with her, and primarily that treat her as an equal.

She stole my heart the moment I met her.

I still worry for her, but I know God has a plan for her. She'll do (and be) great things and be loved all along the way.

What were your worries when you first found out about your child having Down Syndrome?

I love this BC post too! It's definitely one of my favorites.

I posted on there that I worried Calvin wouldn't be cute, would need glasses, wouldn't nurse, would like like he has Ds, and more. Guess what, none of it matters anymore and I love all of it. Isn't it silly to worry? Why do we? Is it because we don't get to see enough of "this" in life? I mean, us loving our cute, typical kids?

I was worried that she wouldn't be happy with her life. That she wouldn't be accepted. That she would be left behind. All things that I do not fear now. I felt like such a horrible person for some of my worries but I realize that everyone worries. This is human...God will handle it. He is GOOD ALL THE TIME!!
