Celebrate Life with Me Today

Thank you for all the kind words this week, especially the ones about Trig.  Did you know that today – March 21, 2012 – is actually World Down Syndrome Day? It’s a great day to take a moment and celebrate life. Children with  Down Syndrome are beautiful, and I’m so proud of my baby brother. I wouldn’t want him any other way!

Now, I dare you guys to watch this without crying:

    Bristol, Thanks for sharing this video. You were right about the kleenex!!! We are all so proud of you! You need to know that you are supported by so many of us who have fallen in love with you from DWTS but have continued to follow you not because of that show but because of your HEART!!!

  • Morris Hahn

    Bristol—your mother is one fantastic absolutely fabulous lady and extremely intelligent in constitutional matters. I hope and pray that she would be president but I know the liberal press and far left won’t let that happen because she is so good and would be great for mainstream America and they are extremely afraid of her and her Ronald Reagan principals. May GOD continue to bless you and your family…From a dirt farmer in Southeast MO. who would like to meet your fabulous family !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Trig isn’t for crying or sentimentalizing. He’s for getting his proper eyeglasses, hearing aids, and tutors to make him all that he can be. He’s not a puppy. He’s a human being who has real needs and demands.

      evelyn,

      I really feel sorry for you!!!

      • Denice Hocott

        So do I, you just don’t get it! were crying because of how sweet this is and if you can’t see that then you just don’t have a heart!

    • Sue

      I’m quite sure that Trig’s FAMILY knows what he needs, much better than you do. Looks like he is getting exactly the love that he needs.

        Wow, what an idiot. It doesn’t matter if it’s next week, 5 years or 30 years from now. The point is a $5K voucher will mean rationing will occur. Surely, you can’t expect a 70 year old to get quality health insurance through a private insurance company? I’m still waiting for Sarah Palin integrity to have some integrity and call this death panels??

    Beautiful video, thanks for sharing.

    By the way your mom finally has her death panels! It’s called the Ryan budget. It leaves seniors with a $5000 voucher to purchase their own private health insurance. As a healthy young man of 36 whom purchases his own health insurance, I can tell you $5K wont get you much. Imagine how a sick 70 or 80 year old will get treated? I’m sure you and your mom will have some integrity and call this a death panel too right? Surely a sick person with only $5,000 a year to spend will get rationed care right? I can’t wait to see Sarah Palin call the Ryan budget a death panel. However, I wont hold my breath as I know honesty and integrity are not part of the Palin stock.

      55 and over arent affected moron.

      • Doug

    The haters here probably sided with that couple in Washington State that just won $4 million dollars b/c the hospital told them their daughter would be born healthy and she was born with Down’s. Talk about the ultimate level of selfishness and greed. Every child is a gift from God and no matter what challenges they may face in life, any TRUE parent would cherish their child despite the challenges. I’m grateful Bristol that you and your Mom both could see the gifts that were given to you in the form of your children, despite the challenges you faced having them. You as a young, single mom and your Mom having a special needs child. It’s a pity more people in this world don’t open their hearts and their minds so wide to love so easily and unconditionally. Blessings to you!!! Look forward to your next blog post!

    I’m sure that you spoke for your mother as well as yourself when putting out this heartfelt post regarding Trig and other children with Down Syndrome. I know that your mother has given $1000 to a charity that supports Down Syndrome children and I would assume that you would have given as well?

  • jharp

    I too have always had a soft spot for downs folks.

    They are the most kind hearted and sweetest beings on this earth.

    Your hate filled Mom could learn a lot from them. Say like treating homosexuals as equally as you would any other human being.

    • Denice Hocott

      I sure hope Sara changes her mind and runs for Pres. she could fix Obama’s screw ups!

      • Shelby Laswell

        Me to! I wish sarah was in office now we would be so much better off! and everybody who hates her and Bristol is just jealous! they are amazing and so are their children!

    Beautiful video from a beautiful Sister…thank you for sharing. Those who did not feel the joy and the pride for these “Special” children and their Loving Families have missed out on GOD’s gifts! None of us are “perfect”, it is our very imperfection that makes us whole and able to work on the things that need improving! Instead of applauding how much these beautiful children have done and the love they have for others….the goofs are poking fun or worse. These are the one’s who are in the most Need—not the Special Children!
    Thank you Bristol for this video and your love to share it with us.
