My daughter just sent me a you tube video of a down syndrome girl who became homecoming queen. I usually shy far away from success stories about such. I forced myself to watch and predictably, the tears fell. When will I ever stop believing I've failed, and continue to fail, as Caleb's mother? I do not know the answer to that question. I only know my heart is broken.

I feel the same way about myself, Mom. You've just got to keep doing your best and trust that it's enough. I've gradually come to the conclusion that guilt is Hell. What I mean is: do your best and trust that God understands and loves your effort. If you do that, guilt doesn't make any sense.
