Amanda Obando Posted about 2 years ago Roberto D'Angelo + Francesca Fedeli: In our baby's illness, a life lesson When I was in the 9th grade my school made us take an intership in a chosen career. I got my 3rd option, psychology, and I ended up in an insititute for down syndrome kids. I realized that among all of those who had the support of their parents, the ones who fended the best off were the children who had both of their parents there with a positive view of life. They saw a what is considered a social, economic and cultural problem as an oportunity for growth for themselves and the people surrounding them. Those parents who just accept a reality bring equanimity to their situation and make it seem like a normal life and I believe that's the most important for any human being, especially for those who happen to have children with disabilities or have disabilites themselves.
