I don't think there is anything better than watching the joy on children's faces when they make new discoveries and try new things. I am trying to look at the positives of my children having "cognitive disabilities". One of those things is that they will be children longer. That means, I can have fantastic Easter egg coloring pictures for a long time!
A parent at Special Olympics said this perfectly, "With Christa (age 40 something), there will always be Santa and the Easter Bunny." So true - and something to smile about and enjoy.
