Well Done!

Sometimes I think I can talk all day . . . write a dozen posts . . . scream from the mountaintops . . . write letters . . . over and over and over trying to explain the life we want for Chloe — the life that we think Chloe wants for herself.  Oftentimes my words fall on deaf ears (figuratively speaking).  Oftentimes my words fall on non-understanding ears.  Oftentimes my words fall to the ground because the hearer doesn’t want to hear or understand.  Oftentimes my words are given a sympathetic grin and pushed aside as a sweet mama in denial speaking non-sense.

And then I see a video that a precious mama made this week for her 2 year old daughter who has Down Syndrome.  The video is powerful — I cried and cried with the power and the truth.  At the time I am posting this, this video has only been viewed 301 times.  I’m hoping many more people see it.  I’m hoping that lots of the people who see it will be changed by it.  I’m hoping that through this video more people will understand the civil rights issue that our family and other families are fighting for.

Well done, sweet Mama!  I am sending my friends to watch your video:

    Absolutely beautiful!! You keep fighting and educating sweet friend!!


    • So . . . when someone watches the video that I have embedded into my blog or the one that I posted on fb, does that not count as views for the video itself on youtube? It still says only 301 views . . .

    I know another sweet little girl who is also beating the odds every day because her mom and dad,brothers, family, caregivers, loving doctors and nurses and therapists, a lot of loving and caring teachers and principals, church friends, pastors and Sunday school teachers and even total strangers that God brings into her life everday to love and provide a safe place for her to become what GOD created her to be!! Kelly, I know it seems at times you are fighting a fight that cant be won…but just look all around you: GOD HAS YOUR BACK…HE HAS AN ARMY OF ANGELS 24/7 THERE FOR HER. THE BATTLE IS NOT YOURS TO FIGHT ALONE…HE IS YOUR PROVIDER. I know you walk by this truth, and praise HIM because HE is able. You are an amazing mom.
