A dear online friend of mine [and soon to be IRL friend this summer] wrote an amazing piece on Plastic Surgery & Down syndrome. Her words spoke my heart and I wanted to share it with those of you who visit and might be interested in reading her post. Just click on this link
My older two [as typcial teens do] watch from time to time the TV shows that feature Plastic Surgery. We openly discuss the shows, from ones for low self-esteem and vanity reasons, to the shows where they repair cleft-lips and other physical defects that interfear with a persons ability to do everyday tasks, such as eat, breathe..etc.
We believe that medical technology in that realm is a blessing. My husband had multiple plastic surgery's to correct cleft issues and being attacked by a dog at a very young age that scarred his face greatly.
i believe that children with down syndrome desreve as muh respect as the next child. neither of the should be treated any differently than the next person. at the end of the day we're all human. we just look a littke different than each other.thats the way god made us. if we all looked the same this world would be sooo boring.
