The reason behind our title bringing it back to the basics is we have a lot of new friends following us and we'd love to let you know a little about us by starting from the beginning and sharing the basics of this CRAZY Clark family!
WHAT'S YOUR WORST FEAR AS A PARENT?
When Londynn was first born my biggest fear was her not being accepted by her peers yet over time I realized yes there may be people who might not see her worth or see how truly beautiful and special she is. Yet the people who are the most important people in her life will and those are the people who matter.
I think this is a concern that many parents in the Down syndrome community have had or have yet I think once we see their worth and see that they can do anything anyone else can do our fears ease and we are able to choose faith.
When I advocate I advocate because I know there's so much more to her than her diagnosis and honestly I don't even think of Down Syndrome when I see her or hear her little voice I see my sweet beautiful little girl who is always learning, growing, and is amazing us everyday!
I remember someone saying that they noticed people would stare at their sweet baby who also just happens to have Down Syndrome in stores or at restaurants. After hearing this I was thinking to myself how I have never noticed someone starring at Londynn yet shortly after I started looking for it... And to be honest I would see people staring at Londynn a baby because well we all know people love babies and love staring at them! So were they staring at a baby or were they staring at her because they saw her almond shaped eyes and thought she might have Down Syndrome.. Honestly who knows and who cares I will let them stare because I love her and if they see my love for her I hope they can take that love that they see I have for her and see the beauty behind this diagnosis.
I've learned people treat Londynn the way I treat her! Well most people and for those of you who are still cautious and nervous about this diagnosis please let these individuals touch your life! You will than only understand why there's so much love when these individuals around.
When people meet Londynn I NEVER openly say she has Down Syndrome. You want to know why? Well It's because she isn't Down Syndrome so why do I need to openly announce that she has it. I do feel comfortable with telling people when they ask though that she is LIVING WITH A LITTLE EXTRA this is because I have never felt so close to the spirit in my life. With Londynn came a little piece of heaven and I'm serious when I say that! She is a true angel in this world during a much needed time!
Also Londynn was born at 37 weeks and 5 days and though she way considered full term she only weighed 4 pounds 7 ounces! She now is still in 3-6 month clothes and we have enjoyed having her little for so long! Many of you asked where we got our preemie clothes because they are hard to find! And I agree they are super hard to find and the only place I could find a variety of styles and sizes from preemie + was Carter's! I've linked the preemie clothes HERE !
