Our local ABC affiliate aired an interview they did with us about the story we’re telling through this website about our son, Noah…who just so happened to have been born with Down syndrome. By the way…I’ve gotta say this….I am SOOOOOO proud of our little boy. 1 year old and he’s already changing the world. Man, I’m smitten. God did good when He made Noah.
For those of you who are new to our website by watching this news interview, or ended up here another way, we’re glad you found us. Be sure to check out these ten great posts to get you started.
I’m thankful for reporters like Shelly Slater who are helping us spread the message that there’s hope for families receiving a Down syndrome diagnosis. That Down syndrome is fully ok. That children like my son (and many others) are fully human, fully lovable, and fully deserving of life.
Thank you Shelly for sharing our story. Your work is appreciated more than you’ll ever know.
Your Story Has Power.
If you’ve been following our story the last week I hope you’re more convinced than ever that:
1. Stories are powerful.
2. Stories remove the veil of fear from people’s lives.
3. Hidden behind the veil of fear is hope. Lots and lots of hope.
Tell your story. Trust me. You may think no one is listening. You may think that no one cares. You may think your story doesn’t have any impact. You may think you don’t even have a story to tell. Guess what….
YOU ARE WRONG.
It doesn’t have to be a video blog like ours. It doesn’t even have to be a blog. It can be outside the box. It can be different. It can be creative. It can be your own style. It doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is that you tell it.
What’s keeping you from telling your story in 2012? What do you think about making this the year that you finally tell your story. People are waiting to hear it. I promise.
