Babies bring anticipated joy;
All the firsts.
The time is pure, innocent, and exciting.
Life is full of wonder—
when the world expects baby
to meet the charts,
to meet the goals,
to meet the base lines,
and to act like all other babies,
then the question is posed,
“What’s “wrong” with THAT baby?”
“Does he… ?” “No”
“Does he…?” “No.”
“Does he…?” “No.”
To us, baby is perfect!
We are at the beginning stages of that “what is wrong” journey.
“Special,” is the new term.
We feel frightened, concerned, and often heavy and heart sick.
Baby to us, is beautiful.
Baby to us, is sweet.
Baby to us, is joyful…
Our family’s gift.
But the world keeps asking…
What’s “wrong” with THAT baby…
Baby doesn’t know anything is wrong with him.
He is just right!
He doesn’t know why we take him to see so many people who
place him on crinkly paper couches,
take blood from his little arms and feet,
place him under machines which make strange clicks,
and keep pushing him to do things which hurt, or feel strange.
He is frightened all these strangers keep touching him.
He is Happy—All the Time—At Home.
But the world expects so much from him.
And what they are expecting,
he may not need to do…
He already has changed how WE view things…
He has a very big job
to teach us!
He shows us each day all the “rights” he possesses
and how courageous HE is to live in a complex world
where HE is viewed with lots and lots of “wrongs.”
I think we are in for an amazing journey ahead!
But some of the best journeys are the hardest ones.
He is perfect, pure, and…so right!
Here we go…
hold on to us tight earth angel–
Together will be the best way!
Come along with us…
