I Have a Wonderful Son With Down Syndrome
I Have a Wonderful Son With Down Syndrome

When I was 29 years old I received the great notice that I was pregnant. I was very happy waiting the day that I would meet Sebastian. The great day finally arrived on November 17, 1999, Sebastian was born but something unexpected came, the notice that I can't believe YOUR SON HAVE DOWN SYNDROME', those words sounded and sounded In my head, I cried hours to hours until I decided to face reality, in this moment I stop to cry and look to my son with other manner as more angelic, a baby that I was his world, the mother, a simple word that means everything to this baby, with the help to my cousin we started with different therapists, his first words MAMA made us mourn but we knew that we were in the right path, the second achievement were his first steps, when he was 2 years old Sebastian could walk. Sebastian is a highly skilled child, he has a great memory, currently Sebastian is 11 years old and he is the best, is a lovely child, he will always be with me I love you Sebastian.
