Jillian Benfield is an ebook author and mom of three living in Arizona. Her second-born child has Down syndrome, and she explains on her website, “We found out our unborn second child, Anderson, had Down syndrome. We were devastated.”
“Our devastation rested in our ignorance about disability and our faulty normative perception about the makings of a good life.”
“Anderson has changed us through and through and for that we are grateful.”
She’s now going viral for an emotional note she shared on Facebook about not being so judgemental of parents with disabled children.
Here’s what Jillian has to say.
