One of the books that Phoenix likes me to read to her at night is a book of nursery rhymes given to her by Grandma Wendy. There are a number of rhymes that I like in this anthology, including the following one:
 This poem just resonates so strongly with me about my journey with accepting Down syndrome. The first step for me was definitely sorrow and the point we are at right now is joyful bliss as my girl continues in her progress with speech and seeks out quiet one on one time with the adults in her life. I am frequently flooded by joyful bliss during these times, enough so that my cup runs over and over and over.
