#1: Today, I danced to the Cupid Shuffle in a sea of people, both with and without Down syndrome, people laughing, people singing, people who were happy. The joy of that particular song gave me confidence that my girl is growing up in a community that will embrace her and love her.
#2: A true child of the 80s, today I am was very happy to meet Corky! I mean, Chris Burke, who starred in "Life Goes On." I may have have handed him my baby and asked for a photo. Fortunately, he's a very understanding guy who probably gets that a lot when meeting parents in the DS community.
I only got a phone photo, as a certain pig-tailed individual wanted to steal Mr. Burke's cookies.
I'm learning, I'm enjoying, I'm meeting some awesome folks, and I am going to BED.
