Alien #Scaredofmythoughts

I sit here and wonder what I keep doing wrong. Why, when I lift someone up, they always let me down. Why, whenever it comes down to it, no one is ever really there when I need them. Maybe it is because I am not like most. Most of my experiences are contained in the four walls that traps me. Maybe it is because they don't want to hear the crippling truth that escapes my lips. Maybe it is because I have done something wrong, or maybe this was the plan in the first place. Maybe I was meant to always be left; to look from the inside and watch as everyone lived their lives and leave me behind. Maybe I'm not human, and all of them know that but me. #MentalHealth #DifferentlyAbled #lonelyandafraid #Anxiety

Changing the Face of Beauty Gives More Than Advertisement

I have a confession. I have only personally met two other mommas that have children with DS. I have met so many beautiful families, via IG, that share a similar journey as ours and I’m so thankful for that friendship! However, the need for a personal connection is vital!
Y’all are “my people”! I need you and you need me. It’s as simple as that. I couldn’t stop crying as I was getting ready this morning because I was afraid of my own emotions that may come out when I walked into our first @changingthefaceofbeauty photo shoot! I was about to be surrounded by more families like mine than I’ve ever been around and they didn’t even know it. I say this because our kids aren’t the only ones that need to see themselves in advertisements, dolls, and magazines. We as parents need to see ourselves in another face, another story, another testimony, over a cup of coffee, or even in a lingering hug.
We never know what another is feeling when we meet them or come into their presence. A simple gesture of love and acceptance is all someone may need.
I have a feeling this is just the beginning of many precious connections! To all my new friends I met today, you and your children are beautiful in so many ways and I’m honored that you are “my people”! .
