31 for 21... Day 5

I have many dreams for Malachi. One of them being, that he will give and receive love. Not only love from friends and family, but true love like his dad and I have for each other. Love that is romantic, fun and silly. I have dreams that Malachi will have a girlfriend (possibly many, he is a ladies man ha) and that he will bring her to holiday celebrations. I have dreams that Malachi will go to prom with a lady and that he will get his first kiss at the end of the night. I have dreams he will stroll through the park holding the hand of someone he has fallen in love with.

Will Malachi ever know this kind of love? I don't know. But I have dreams that he will. People who don't understand will probably think I am crazy, but I believe people with Down syndrome have the ability to fall in love and have a wonderful relationship. I have dreams that this will happen for my son and possibly one day I will get to experience the same joy my mother did the day I got married.

Check out the following video, proof that true love have no limits or boundaries!

We plan to build a house in the next 10-15 yrs with a mother-in-law apt so that Max and his future wife have a place to live where I can keep my eye on them ;)
{my mom will most likely live there first}
Dream big!
