As I post for the first time, Jared's bus has just pulled away, through the dark, northeastern air, leaving puffs of steam in its wake. Jar waits out their each morning, bookbag in one hand, lunch pail in the other, wrestling pack on his back. He is a junior in high school, already talking about being a senior, then a super senior, before heading off to college. I think I will design this blog with the end in mind, so that young mothers and fathers who have just been told that their son or daughter has Down Syndrome will see the hope that we now feel as the yellow bus pulls away.
