When I was growing up we lived out in the country. We only had one close neighbor with kids; I remember Tim and Karen so well. Tim was a pain, but Karen was so much fun! We loved playing house and dancing together! I so clearly remember Karen singing and dancing in her livingroom, belting out "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head," and "Downtown!" She was so loving and happy.
It wasn't until I grew older that I even realized Karen had special needs. I could write a whole book on the truth of being young and innocent, and the parallel of God's love. I will always have a huge heart for kids with Down Syndrome. Karen went to heaven at an early age due a heart defect related to her Down Syndrome, but I was so privileged to be a part of her life. This poster made me think of my childhood friend.
