I Wouldn't Change a Thing

If there was a magic wand that could take away Ben's Down syndrome, (which there isn't) I don't think I would use it.  Would I like to make life easier for Ben?  You bet.  Would I like to take away all the people who will hurt him over his lifetime?  In a second.  But I don't want to take away that special something that makes Ben who he is. He is a silly, active, inquisitive, dancing, giggling, ornery little boy, who has made our family so much better by being exactly who he is.  I love him just the way he is.
