Perfect

ESPN has a segment called E:60 that gives you a behind-the-scenes look at a story they're reporting on.

They recently had an episode titled "Perfect." The description: "There was a time when Heath White chased perfection. E:60 s Tom Rinaldi tells the story of a how the birth of a girl with Down Syndrome led to the re-birth of a man who thought he had everything, until he discovered the joy of pushing Paisley."

This was such a moving piece to watch. The raw emotions in Heath admitting he did not want his wife to continue with this pregnancy; he did not want a daughter who has Down syndrome....and for his wife, whom an abortion was not an option. They tell their story of how Paisley changed her father's views on life.

It is well worth the 15 minutes to watch it.

Ps: I have been meaning to thank you for the recent post on your daughter catching the bus, and how you realized you had to let go and give her some independence.
My daughter, also nine, has been hassling me for a while to catch the bus, and I have been ignoring it.
I finally realized I have to let go and let her do it.
It was successful, I don't know who she sat next to or what happened (there are other kids with her from her class and school) but I just knew I had to let go and let her grow up a bit.
So thank you as your post helped me to see this! She now catches the bus home every Tuesday, we will build up to more days!
