Joy Found In Mothering Child With Down Syndrome

“I personally believe … people with Down Syndrome have an extra dose of love. They have an extra ability to reach people’s hearts because they don’t have the self consciousness of ‘what are people thinking of me? Am I being judged?’ –They just love.” Leticia Velasquez

Suzanne Haugh directs the charitable non-profit Goodness Reigns, Inc. and has worked as a Catholic journalist for over 13 years. She lives in Louisville, KY, with her husband of 20 years and their three children.

Leticia’s recent article in the National Catholic Register on Jerome Lejeune, the geneticist who discovered the cause of Down Syndrome. He has since passed but his daughter, Clara, has written a book (Life Is a Blessing) about her father and his love for these special people.

Leticia also has a blogspot, which you can access here:
