Since I can't speak from experience with my own child yet, maybe I should go tell this
Or maybe, I should tell this person who happened to be born in the Ukraine, that a lot of wonderful families are filling out tons of paperwork, raising lots of money, and opening their hearts and their homes to a child from HER country, who has been tossed aside to die because they have Down syndrome. Maybe I should tell her that these children are going to have wonderful lives here in the United States. They will be cherished and adored and they will grow up to enjoy their adulthood immensely because there are families HERE who don't think their children will grow up "into incomprehensible, obstinate, sullen, capricious, and sometimes very violent adults". Seriously.
Feel free to go tell this person what you think. What a sad, sad world this would be without children and adults with Down syndrome in it. I'm so thankful that God gave me my daughter, and that we're about to be doubly blessed when Kellsey joins our family. And when they grow up into the wonderful adults I know they will be, you better believe I'm going to tell this person all about it. Seriously.
