31 for 30

A few of my friends have been talking the last couple of days about how their children with Down syndrome has a sixth sense.

C could probably qualify as having a sixth sense.  When he was younger, he'd give everyone hugs (and kisses--which are VERY wet).  A few years ago, probably when he was in kindergarten. He stopped hugging everyone.  That was partly because of his interpreter, she would encourage him to shake hands instead.  But now, C is very picky about who he hugs.

One summer day, about 2 years ago.  We were at a t-ball game.  C left the game and went to sit next to a lady who was sitting in the stands.  By the time I got to him, she was in tears.  She told me that C had come up to her and given her a great, big hug and then sat down next her.  She said that she had been having a very bad day and that she needed a hug.

So, if you get a hug from C, you are extremely lucky.:)
