This is an approximate version. I am not sure I remember it word for word......
At the conference the other day, someone said something about children with Down syndrome having only a "good inclination", and not a "bad" one. (This is a sister statement to the "They are all so cute and loving.".)
Later that evening, a friend grinned at me (she also has an older child). "Does Ricki only have a good inclination?" (wink)
- "Yeah", I said, "she broke her glasses on purpose yesterday because of her good inclination...."
New parents , I have news for you. They are not always sweet. Kids with down syndrome, just like anyone else in the family, can be ornery, difficult, angry, not sweet, etc. THEY ARE PEOPLE.
