Sarah bloomed like we knew she would in her new place, but melted down when she wasn't able to get on the bus with her friends. Next week, sweetie!
An AHA moment came this afternoon when I picked her up. Another couple was touring her daycare, as I was leaving. I had only strapped her in her carseat, when they came over to my car.
"I know this is awkward, but we're interviewing daycares and we have a little girl with Down syndrome. What do you think about this one?"
And so Sarah's story was shared and I could only shout praises for the accommodations, the flexibility, and their love for Sarah.
I said, "She is loved and that is all a Mama wants for her child."
We talked about IEP's, and the school district preschool. They are one year behind us, and were surprised to learn Sarah had only been in the country since Memorial Day. I'm learning quickly, they said. One day at a time, that's all.
Paving the way for another child with something extra, my Sarah. Oh, she is changing lives, making her way in this wonderful world.
My Sarah, making her mark in this world.
What a wonderful front-row seat in this wild, precious life I've been given.
