When Chris and I were on our honeymoon we got these matching four leaf clover tattoos on our ankles. We got them to bring us good luck in our marriage and that they have, though perhaps they were supposed to resemble someone else? 🍀
Who knows why Down syndrome occurs? Why does the extra 21st chromosome stick to the cell when the fertilised egg begins its first cell division? It can be compared to what happens in nature to a field of clovers. Usually, we see 3 leaves on each clover. Once in a while,however, we find a clover that has an extra leaf,making it a four leaf clover. We don’t know why Mother Nature decided to add that extra leaf; she just did.
There is no obvious explanation, all of our clover plants grew in the same soil, were exposed to the same sun and rain ect.
Mother Nature just decided to add an extra leaf to one of the clovers in the clover patch.
This doesn’t make it better or not as good as the other clovers, it just makes it different.
Some people even believe it brings a person good luck when they find a four leaf clover. It is much the same way with the extra chromosome. We don’t know why Mother Nature didn’t cell divide evenly, but she didn’t. She decided to add another chromosome to that baby’s cells. It doesn’t make the baby better or not as good as the other babies, it just makes him or her different.
And if you find one of those babies, you are truly lucky for they are very special babies, who grow into very special people. #theluckyfew #blessed #happymarriage #t21journey #t21love #downsyndromelove
