Why I’m Glad I Didn’t Know Trig Had Down Syndrome
October 27, 2015 by
I read about a mom of a 14-year-old boy with Down Syndrome who says she’s glad she didn’t learn of his diagnosis before he was born… I totally understand.
Model Amanda Booth didn’t learn her son Micah had Down Syndrome until he was 4 months old. Even now, she and her husband limit their online research about the disorder, and they say it makes their life more full. Their son isn’t limited by what he “should” and “shouldn’t” be able to do. He learns at his own pace and is one determined little boy. Being part of his life helps his parents slow down their pace and enjoy every stage of life together.
We (the kids in my family) didn’t know Trig was Down Syndrome until after he was a few hours old. Looking back now, I’m glad we didn’t know. We would’ve built up preconceived ideas about what our brother would be like and worried too much about it. (read much more on Bristol’s Blog)
