Birthdays should be celebrated

Tinkerbell will turn 4 in August and I'm sure it will be a fun day filled with friends, family, birthday cake, a few presents, and joyful celebration over the day that she was born.  And that's how it should be.  Birthdays are fun!  For MY kids at least.  But they are not special needs orphans living in the middle of Russia.

I'm sorry to be a Debbie Downer today- it seems there is bad news everywhere we turn, and the daily updates about the earthquake in Haiti are tragic beyond belief.  But I came across this story yesterday from a friend who has a sweet, lovable 4 year old with Downs Syndrome herself, and I felt compelled to pass it on.
