A Feeling of…. Gratitude

It wasn’t that long ago that kids with trachs spent their entire lives in the hospital.

  Can you imagine?

It was thought that kids with trachs faced too many obstacles to be able to live outside of a hospital setting.  Times have changed.  For this I am thankful.

 

 

It also wasn’t that long ago parents of children born with Down syndrome were instructed to put their newborn babies into institutions and forget about them.

Can you imagine?

It was thought that kids with Down syndrome couldn’t learn, and it was better to simply pretend they never were.  But things have changed and for this I am thankful.

 

 

So very thankful for this beautiful littlest one of mine, his trach and his extra chromosome both are gifts to me.

 

What are you thankful for? 

Feel free to leave your thoughts and a link to your own gratitude post in the comments below.
