Saturday Snapshot: January 28, 2012


I am with my second cousins' children. I cherish this photo becos, the boy you see here, has down's syndrome, and I don't know what he saw in me or felt about me, he simply came and hugged me. According to my cousin, he seldom does that to anyone except for his immediate family. I had only seen him once before, when he was a wee little baby, and wasn't as yet diagnosed. That girl is his younger sister.

A lovely photo. In the USA about 93% of Down Syndrome babies are now aborted. He looks like a treasure, and we can all use a hug, he he probably knows that.
