This blog lets you keep up with the W family. Our three boys are John who is 18, a high school grad and off to college, Noah who is 15 going on 21 and loves sports and little Ben, who is the sweetest little 8 year old, who happens to have Down syndrome(unless he accidently ate some gluten, then he turns into Mr. Hyde.)
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.
