Two today!

14 Feb 2014

Remembered at the last minute that the blog is two years old today, seen as I haven’t prepared anything to mark the occasion here is a little ‘off the cuff’ and if I’m honest ‘pretty naff’ poem:

Roses are Red

Violets are Blue

It’s Valentines Day

And ‘The Future’s Rosie’ is Two!

I really must thank you all for your constant and seemingly endless support, your words of encouragement and wisdom. It all really does mean so much.

I’m raising a glass to you all tonight

Much love.

Tom & Rosie


The Future's Rosie

I'm Tom, a thirty something father to three beautiful children and husband to my soulmate Karen. I started this blog as a means to talk about stuff, get things out in the open, a bit like an online therapy I guess and to celebrate the progress of my beautiful daughter Rosie who was born in March 2011 with Down's Syndrome (DS) and a Complete Atrioventricular Septal Defect (AVSD). Maybe the experiences shared on here will help others too, hopefully help illustrate the bright futures our children with DS will have if we can break down common misconceptions. When I first found out Rosie would be born with DS I found reading literature with open and honest feelings on the subject, extremely helpful. This is not intended to be a written masterpiece and I can promise you it won’t be. I don’t pretend to have a large vocabulary and to be honest the further behind me my school days become the more my grammar has deteriorated!... however, you will find what is written on these pages comes from the heart.
