Getting pregnant is one of the best things that may happen to a married couple. They wait with bated breath for their lovely kids to arrive, but regrettably, not all babies are created equal. Some infants are born with birth abnormalities that impair their growth, yet parents still love their children despite these flaws!
The McConnel twins, Charlie and Milo, were born with Down Syndrome.
This occurs when a specific chromosome triple instead of doubling. This disease causes development abnormalities, cognitive difficulties, a prominent facial look, and other issues.
However, when a kid is born with Down Syndrome, many parents grow dissatisfied with their lives and try to ignore the child. They would be embarrassed in front of their child, and the youngster would not receive the love and care they deserved.
Dan and Julie, the twins’ parents, have done something truly remarkable, setting an example for all parents worldwide!
Further, They are practically celebrating their twins’ condition and demonstrating the ‘benefits’ of the illness to the rest of the world. They routinely share photos of their twins on social media. And each of these photos challenges preconceived notions about the condition. Simply put, they tell it like it is when it comes to raising children with Down syndrome.
This is what Julie had to say about her exceptional children:
“My aim is to attract families who have received a Down syndrome diagnosis for their kid, as this can be a very frightening experience.” I’m hoping that others will come across us and realize that this is how life can be. It may be enjoyable, it is full of love, and it is not frightening. We have no regrets, and we have a lot of joy in our life, which I hope people can see.”
The couple is seeking to build a secure environment for their children in which other parents of children with this illness may come together and share their worries, experiences and learn from one another.
“It takes them a bit longer to reach milestones,” Julie explained, “but when they do, we rejoice like no other parents alive.” “We throw a celebration for them and are ecstatic when they achieve their goals.”
“It’s important to show everyone else that we’re here and that there are all these kids in our neighborhood,” their father continued. “We hope that they’ll notice us and remember us and that things will continue to improve in our communities with a lot more acceptance.”
“We’re standing on the shoulders of previous parents who paved the way for all of this to happen. And it’s a wonderful moment to have a Down syndrome child… I want to watch them grow up and pursue their dreams.”
So, how do you feel about this lovely tale? Isn’t this the appropriate message that we should all spread to everyone to build an attractive environment where children with this condition can live happily? Please let us know what you think!
