“The dandelion. Just the sound of the word either ignites a sense of whimsy and childlike joy or for the gardener, a feeling of dread and despair. When Chloe was born and a diagnosis of Down syndrome was delivered, we felt the rush of joy and dread along with whimsy and despair. We felt the pain of what we thought might be a ‘weed’ in our perfectly landscaped plan of life. Yet what exactly is a weed? It’s simply a wild plant growing where it wasn’t planted and that isn’t always a bad thing! Especially when it’s a dandelion! Dandelions bring the world color and magic, they help us to slow down and play, and they remind us that what one considers a ‘problem’ is really only a problem if looking through the wrong lense. We have seen that Chloe’s life has freed us to stop and enjoy the fun and unique opportunities or spreading joy. It has taught us to fight for Down syndrome to be seen as more than a ‘problem’ but instead as a beautiful addition to our landscape of life.”
