Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond to my question, To Be or To Have. All excellent responses. Truthfully, Sarah and I really don't have a strong preference to which way it is, I just want to make sure that we are not offending any new families, today.
When Sarah was born (1989) it was still referred to as Down's and usually the kid last. Thankfully soon after, the movement to put the person first began to take hold as in "a child with Down's" and now we have dropped the "'s" on Down. I do like how it is evolving, and for the better I believe. Interesting article shared by Patricia Bauer about this very subject in the New York Times last week.
The poll has closed and by overwhelming majority(84%) "to have" is the preferred choice. We have change the profile description, although, we decided to take it off the heading. When Sarah came up with calling her blog Class of 2008, she was simply celebrating her graduation, period.
Instead we "stole" a colorful awareness ribbon from Jaxson's Fight and added it to our sidebar. If you have not met Jaxson, stop by his site. What a little fighter. Thank you Jax and mom Lacey for sharing your story and the ribbon.
