|I was lame and had the bartender add more Sprite in mine.|
It was a simple weekend, a fun weekend, and a much needed weekend to regroup.
This was my first weekend without Harper and man did I miss her! I was reminded of her every time we passed a giraffe at the hotel and when we passed by the cutest girl who had to be around 4 who had Down syndrome but had the cutest long brown pigtails! I just wanted to stop and squeeze her but thought I'd be arrested or slugged by her mother!
The happiness I felt while passing that little girl was genuine. I don't know her or her mother but I know them. I hope that her mom has had the same support and love that I have felt in the past 6 months. I hope she knows what a blessing her daughter is and how she is helping change the world.
World Down Syndrome Day is approaching. March 21st to be exact. There is a fantastic video that you can see here that the International Down Syndrome Coalition for Life created. I had every intention to participate but life got in the way (I really need to get it together). I have only watched this once because I cried. While I cried Harper laughed at me. So, I know it's a good video. This video means the world me to not only because I recognize a few friendly faces but because I recognize what it stands far and what each parent has felt.
Take a second to watch the video but in the meantime here are a few pics from the past week.
