Trisomy 18, incompatible with life, lethal, vegetative, non-responsive. Yeah, not this kid.
Someone forgot to tell him what he's "supposed" to be.
Instead, he's full of life, goofy, silly, and growing.
Will he ever go to college? Nope. Will he ever perform on the same level as his typical peers? Not likely. But is he learning and developing and using that brain of his? ABSOLUTELY!!
This child, this growing, learning, thriving boy, has had such a huge impact upon my life and the lives of so many.
Trisomy 18 awareness day. Know it, spread it, embrace it.
