Great Article

" In addition to teaching me about humanity, I also think that my son has taught me something about divinity. I think my love for him sometimes provides a hint of what God's love for us must be like. Like my love for my son, God's love for us doesn't depend on our intellect, our accomplishments or our proximity to what society defines as "success." People with Down syndrome wear their vulnerability on their faces. They are a visible reminder that the image of God reflected in humanity includes people of all sorts of intellectual capacities. It would be an impoverished society indeed that succeeded in eliminating such powerful teachers of both humanity and divinity." This quote is from the article "Down Syndrome and the Pressure to Abort". It's a great article that can be read in full here.
