This is Curtis. He is about seven months old and he is my favorite thing about my job. His parents bring him to the office to hang out with me once or twice a week and I LOOOOOVE him!
Before I met his family, I used to wonder about how families handle having a baby with Downs Syndrome, or any other disability. I wondered how they would feel, knowing their child would always be different, knowing that they may never get a job or meet someone and get married. How did they come to terms with the fact that their child may never develop mentally?
But when you see Curtis or hold him, you just realize, who the hell cares? As long as he is healthy and smiling, nothing else matters. He’s a beautiful little boy, and it’s so obvious how much his family loves him that you just know he’s going to be just fine no matter what the future may hold. He is precious.
(Plus his tongue always sticks out and you gotta poke him in the tongue to remind him to put it back in, and it’s so funny the way he reacts! Love this kid!!)
