Question: have my husband and I thought about who would take care of Flick if we were unable to? Yes we have, I think a lot of parents do regardless of ability or disability. Yet, it would entail more time to put in with her than a typical child and adult. It’s something we seriously think about and when we do I usually want to cry because I can’t imagine this life without each other! .
How do you explain Down syndrome to other children? I’d say they are just like you, it just sometimes takes a little longer to get things, but she does get it. I’d encourage them to talk to the person or child with ds and if they have questions, to ask them! The more they know, the more comfortable they feel. One thing I’ll ALWAYS stress is that while we are all different, we also have that in common, being different in our own ways. We can learn so many amazing things from people with disabilities, just like they learn from typical people. Equality is key! ❤️
