DOWN SYNDROME CREED
My face may be different but my feelings the same
I laugh and I cry. I take pride in my gains.
was sent here among you to teach you to love,
As God in the Heavens
looks down from above.
To Him I'm no different; His love knows
It's those here among you in cities and towns
That judge me by standards that man has imparted
But the family He's chosen will help me get started.
I'm one of His children so special and few
That came here to learn
the same lessons as you.
That love is acceptance; it must come
from the heart.
We all have the same purpose though not the same
The Lord gave me life to live and embrace
And I'll do it as you do — just at my own pace.
