This is a hauntingly beautiful story. As a former OB nurse, I remember looking at baby's palms to see if they had that crease that many Down Syndrome babies have. The girl who used to babysit my kids had a baby with many problems. Her heart gave out after only 11 years, but oh my what joy she brought and continues to bring into the lives of many. I noticed you forgot your end quotation marks sometimes, but that can be fixed easily. Your story is on topic, yet still original and fresh with an amazing message.
Beautiful. Poignant.
Thank you for this powerful story.

A beautiful story. I imagine every mother experienced unexpected emotions, picturing herself in that position. It doesn’t take long to see the silver lining when we trust God’s purposes and goodness.

Nice writing.
Your story gave me goose bumps. Each child is a gift and has a purpose. Thank you for the beautiful writing.
Congratulations on ranking 20th overall. Happy Dance!
What a touching story. Well done. :)
I'm really late on my comments, but trying to get caught up. Beautiful story, and I'm sure she was a blessing! Did you ever read Dale Evans Rogers book "Angel Unaware?" It's the story of their daughter, Robin, who had Down Syndrome. That book moved me to have my career working with people who have disabilities.
