My Girl

They told me that my girl had Down syndrome. I cried.
They told me that my girl had Infantile spasms. I cried.
They told me that my girl had Autism. Actually I think that was a lie, but I still cried.
Now I see all that my girl has accomplished.
Now I see my girl loving life.
Now I see my girl strutting her stuff.
Now I see my girl making jokes and chuckling like things are so funny.
Now I see my girl running to the door to greet me when I come home. She has a huge smile on her face.
All those tears just made me love her all the more.

  5. Hi
    My name is Jenna and i came across your blog. Quinn, is an amazing, special and precious, earthly angel. She is a beautiful little girl with a very pretty smile. She is a courageous, strong and determined fighter. She is a brave warrior, smilen champ and an inspirational hero. I was born with a rare life threatening disease, diagnosed with 12 other conditions, and have developmental delays. I love it when people sign my guestbook.

  6. My name is Juul (from the Netherlands) and I came across your blog by accident.
    Quinn is such a cute girl!

    I love this song called "Wonder" of Natalie Merchant.

    Ooo, I believe: Fate smiled at Destiny,
    Laughed as she came to my cradle:
    "Know this child will be able,"
    Laughed as my body she lifted,
    "Know this child will be gifted
    With love, with patience, and with faith.
    She'll make her way; she'll make her way."

    Goodbye, Juul
