This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Lisa Blar. And I'm Michelle Loris.

I believe in mystery. I believe in family. I believe in being who I am. I believe in the power of failure. I believe in normal life is extraordinary. This I believe.

Down syndrome has been in the news recently. The infant son of republican vice presidential candidates Sarah Palin has the disorder. About one in eight hundred babies are born with Down Syndrome. Today this I believe this came from a parent of one of them. And we should say it was admited before senator Mckain picked governor Palin to be running mate. The essay comes from Gregg Rogers. His English professor in state college Pensylvania. He wasn't sure he could handle being a father of a child with Down syndrome. Here is our serious creator and producer Jane Alison. 

Gregg Rogers came to his belief, only after his daughter was born. Before that, his beliefs were different, and based it he said unfair. His transformative journey to his new belief began in the doctor's office during the pregnancy, when he and his wife first received the news. Here is Gregg Rogers and his essay for this I believe.

It is * 23. It is Down syndrome. Beyond those words, I heared nothing, sitting in the *'s office. The daughter was talking about my unborn daughter. And the results were analyses and *. I know there were words after the statement but I don't remember them. I do remember returning almost my wife crying on the sofa. I distinctly remember saying,  "I don't want this". I didn't want the situation. I didn't want this responsibility. I didn't want to become one of those parents, the parents of the child of disability. People told me, " if anyone can handle it, you can. " " Easy for you to say", I thought. "God never give you more than you can handle, wish you were me."  " Really, then why do people who are nervous break down. Well, how about we can?" they said. " Fine", I thought. " You have the kid with developmental delay, and I will help you out." For month, I was terrified. My wife Lucy and I now refered the period of the time leading up to my daughter's birth has the pit. We barely spoke to each other, because we didn't know what to say. We simply suffered through each day together but feeling terribly alone. And then Janevill was born. She's spent her first eight days in the near natal tense of caring unit in the regional medical center. On each of those eight days, I made the 155 miles round trip to see her, because she was my daugher. I sad surgical gun intensive care, holding her on a tangle of tubes and wires, singing the same songs I sing to other daughters. On the nineth day, she came home. And I began to realize of my feelings of * had changed in a way that no prenatal screening could ever predicted. I believe Janevivs here for everyone. I believe Janevivs taking over the world one heart a time beginning with mine. I believe that once perceived damnation has now become our unexpected salvation. Janevivs recently turned three, and she is doing very well for herself. She runs and climbs and everything, and loves to * with her 2 older sisters and her younger brother. She doesn't have a lot of spoken words yet. Although her first four sense turned out to be " what's up with that ". She does have over 100 science that allow her to ask for strawberry, pizza or icecream or tell us when she wants to sleep or play on her computer. She goes to a regular plain school 3 days a week and seems to know more people around town than I do. I laugh everyday because of Janeviv. On my right wrest, I wear a simple silver chain with 3 little bitts on it. I used to say the three bitts * the 3rd * that results in *21 Down Syndrome. Now when I look at those bitts. They simply remind me that I don't ever know as much as I think I do, but I am alway capable more than I think I am.

Gregg Rogers with his essay for this I believe. Rogers said the decision not to terminate the pregnancy was really his wife's. He said she had more faith than my ability to handle this than I did, and she was right. They've started an information network for other families with Down syndrome area. And you can find a link on website NPR.org/this i believe. Along with this information about submitting me your own essay. This I believe I am John Alison.

Support for this I believe comes form potential retirement

This I believe is independently produced by John Alison and Dam Gadman with John Gregory and Viki Merick. There is this i believe journal and day planner that might help you write your own statement this i believe. It's available from the NPRshop and NPR.org/this i believe.
