A Cure For Ds?

I’m thankful that there is no known cause for Down syndrome; why Wil has that little third copy of the 21st chromosome. Because if they knew that, then there may be a cure.
When Wil was born, of course I wanted to know why, why, why. Now I can honestly say that is the last question I would ask. Even when I am down on my knees, feeling lost in the challenge of the day, I never ask, Why did Ds happen? It’s a non-issue. Wil has Ds, period. Without the answers to these questions, finding my way to full acceptance and moving forward was much quicker. Rather I fully enjoy all that he is. No small stone is unturned without a lift in my soul. I love it ALL. I embrace it ALL. Even when my head is spinning I would never take a second of it back.
I don’t want a cure or seek a cure. To me, there is nothing to be cured. Now, if we are talking health issues associated with Ds, then let’s talk cures. But as for Ds, full acceptance is embracing the whole of a person, not just what we believe is “typical.”
The way I see it, in this life it is not about fighting what we are against, rather it is about the fight of what we are for.
