I just wanted to publicly thank Deidrea and T.K. Laux for this video. I can't tell you enough how much it means to me, to know that you chose Thomas!
Knowing full well what the out come of this pregnancy would likely be, this couple chose to put their own feelings aside and give Thomas an opportunity at life, regardless how fleeting it might have been. They gave Thomas the chance to enjoy life and be loved as ALL babies deserve.
PLEASE, Think before you decide that your little one isn't worth it. Thomas was worth it!
I'm sure that to some people, Thomas would have been less than perfect. But in the eyes of his parents, he was the world. HE WAS PERFECT!
Too many people are choosing to terminate babies who are PERFECTLY beautiful children. Out of selfishness? Or fear? I don't know... but it makes me so sad to think that so many children with DS are being terminated because they aren't what their PERFECT parents expected. This is awful. Again, please talk to someone, do some research, meet people with disabilities and STOP being PERFECT!
