Trisomy 21

When I heard the words for the first time I knew it was real.
I was scared of what was to come but filled with joy.
When I felt you move I feel in love
A love so deep I have never felt before.
When I saw you for the first time...
I cried because you were so amazingly handsome.
When I heard the two words, that followed your birth.
I felt like I wanted to die.
I had hope and prayed that there was a reason for your difference.
Now as time has gone by I know why I was blessed with you.
God sent me my guarding angel!
In human form not just a spirit we think we have.
Everyday people stare and say I'm sorry.
Why I ask I have something you don't. an Angel
When you get older and kids ask why you look different?
You can tell them because I have one more chromosome then YOU!
