A few weeks ago a sweet mama came up to me and asked if her son, Ethan, could meet Elias. She said he watched one of the video's on my blog and was curious about it. "Who is that? Is he your friend? Can I meet him?" And so they met...
And Elias fell in love with him. I think they really bonded when Elias saw that his new friend was eating his favorite food!
After they left, I felt loved. Something struck my heart when I saw this eight-year-old boy caring for my son. He loved him and he accepted him. He knew there was something different about Elias, but he wasn't nervous about the difference, he was fascinated!
When I first found out Elias had Down Syndrome, my mind was preoccupied with how other kids might treat him and make fun of him, this thought devastated me. I wish I could have known about today--how Ethan would love my son.
