Ambassador Against Fear
I just finished reading a column in the Boston Globe by Beverly Beckham who has a granddaughter with Down sydrome. She points out that Lucy may be the only child with Down syndrome a person ever meets, which can obviously be true for Lucas too. Living in our little world of therapies, doctors appointments, and everything else that comes with his diagnosis, I lose sight of the incredible opportunity Lucas has to change opinions and to dispel myths about Down syndrome. We may not be royalty, but unbeknownst to him our little bean has been entrusted with a noble cause.
