Depression hit me when I realised that he’d never be the same as other children

Depression hit me with full force when Krystian was about 6. I realised that he’d never be the same as other children and that we were losing against the Down syndrome. The depression made me look at myself. Look at what kind of person I was and what I wanted. To start to love myself, to love my own faults, to love my otherness. After all, everyone’s different. Only at that point was I able to really love Krystian. To notice how fantastic he is. To notice all his wonderful traits and to love him as the person he really is. Not to defeat the syndrome, but to love my son!
