Treasuring Down Syndrome

I ran across a well written piece on the joy and beautifulness of Down syndrome.  I stumbled upon it today, although it was written just one month (Sept. 2008) after Joseph was born.  The article includes links to follow and read; be sure to have tissues handy.  To knowingly choose one life over another, whether out of fear or ignorance is sad.  I wish more people were given the opportunity to befriend or be befriended by an individual with Down syndrome.  It only takes a moment to experience their beauty and treasure their friendship.
