When Someone Asked If I Wish My Son Didn't Have Down Syndrome

One day on a trip down the rabbit hole that is the internet, I came across a discussion board where parents were weighing in on a question:  If you could, would you choose for your child with Down syndrome to be typical instead?

There were a lot of different takes on this topic and I’m not here to tell you which outlook is right, and which isn’t. What I can tell you is that anyone who stated that they would take away their child’s diagnosis said so on the grounds they did not want their child to struggle and if they could take that away, they would.

And the truth is that children with Down syndrome will very likely struggle with something at some point during their lifetime, and those struggles will likely be connected to their diagnosis.
