#World Down Syndrome Day 2017 – Day 20
“I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
This is Sean, our eight year old son. He is the youngest of our five children and has Down syndrome. He was diagnosed with Down syndrome when I was 20 weeks pregnant and I was scared and anxious about what the future would hold. But since the moment Sean was born he has brought such joy to our lives and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
He is growing up to be a gorgeous, well-mannered boy with a great sense of fun and humour (as well as a reasonable dose of stubbornness!). He absolutely adores his immediate and extended family and is constantly saying “love you”. I have learnt to be very comfortable with taking things in “Sean time”, knowing that progress is always there but on a different plane to the other children. We are looking forward to seeing this little boy grow up and seeing what the future holds.
