I Dreamed
by Amy Cavaness

I dreamed he'd be born beautiful and healthy.
He was.

I dreamed he'd tell me that he loves me.
He tells me every day.

I dreamed he'd be bright and funny.
He is - his humor is wonderful.

I dreamed he'd ride a bike, catch a ball and wrestle with his big brother.
He does and his brother loves it.

I dreamed he'd have big birthday parties with lots of friends and cake and presents.
He's had six.

I dreamed he'd one day get on a bus and go to kindergarten.
He did it yesterday - my heart full of love and my eyes full of tears.

I dreamed he'd make us proud.
He has, and he's inspired us.

Dean has Down Syndrome.
I never dreamed that.

Its been a week, though, and the fun hasn't died, it is a great bar of soap. My husband really likes it as well. I have not tried the Cardamom Rose soap, but it smells heavenly and I am sure that if it…
