Poking the Future with a Stick

When Marcus and I arrived at the courthouse today we ran into one of his former co-workers. Last Spring this coworker shared with me that her sister had just given birth to a daughter with Down syndrome. This was not suspected prenatally and the mother struggled with the diagnosis. At that time, the co-worker told me that her sister cried and cried all the time, devastated by this. Marcus’ coworker told her about Marcus, how he worked at the printing company with her, how happy he seemed to her.

Sigh. I wish I could reach her. I wish I could hold this mother and her baby both in my arms.
