This blog lets you keep up with the W family. Our three boys are John who is 17 and very into sports, Noah who is 14 going on 21 and is trying to keep up with his big brother and little Ben, who is the sweetest little 8 year old, who happens to have Down syndrome.
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.
