T21 :: Ds Creed

My face may be different
But my feelings the same
I laugh and I cry
And I take pride in my gains
I was sent here among you
To teach you to love
As God in the heavens
Looks down from above
To Him I'm no different
His love knows no bounds
It's those here among you
In cities and towns
That judge me by standards
That man has imparted
But this family I've chosen
Will help me get started
For I'm one of the children
So special and few
That came here to learn
The same lessons as you
That love is acceptance
It must come from the heart
We all have the same purpose
Though not the same start
The Lord gave me life
To live and embrace
And I'll do it as you do
But at my own pace


  1. I've always loved this poem. Happy World Down syndrome day :)

    1. You too Jenny! Sorry I am just getting to your reply.

  2. i dont know if you have read this blog before but i found it when i was pregnant with Kaylin - it's a great blog, her youngest has Downs Syndrom so she talks quite a bit about it. regardless of that tho it's definitely a GREAT read- very inspirational!


  3. Hey Amanda, Yes I do read it. It was one of the first I started reading when I learned LB had Ds.

    Thanks for the suggestion! :P)
