Down Syndrome is definitely not a curse. It’s not a misfortune, nor even a mixed blessing. Those with Down Syndrome are gifts delivered to us straight from the hand of God.
Pure, unadulterated and perfect kindness. Love in the flesh. The life they lead is most often cut short. Why?
Because we don’t deserve to have them any longer than that. That’s why. They are an opportunity for us to witness what it means to be ‘good’. Not as in, good brownies or good times. Not even as in good family, or good spouse.
More like “God saw all that he had made, and it was very good” (Genesis 1:31)
Thanks Kevin. Good to see you again. Hope we can do lunch again soon – James
