Don’t Look Too Far Beyond
We often find it difficult to look beyond thing. Surprisingly when it comes to disability it we are very good and do look beyond.
I was reading the blog a sphere and I came across this post
Sometimes I forget that our son has Down syndrome. It’s easy to be distracted by his two year old tantrums, his mischievous smile and go getter attitude. Gabe is kind hearted but stubborn. He immediately runs to check on sister when she is having a dramatic, I’m four and the world is over, meltdown. He will climb onto your lap randomly and stretch his little fingers up to stroke your cheek, just to say I love you.
As someone who has a Brother with a Severe Mental Handicap and as someone who spent this teens working with and around young people with various disabilities I think it is a great post and reminds us to look beyond the disability and to the person inside. This applies not just for Downs Syndrome but all disability.
As always I would love to hear from you, please feel free to comment below on the post or share with others using the social media buttons.
