Letter to a Grandmother 3-09


Dear Kitty:

I wanted you to know what a wonderful grandson you have.
John Jewl is such a treasure to be with. I’m very proud of him.
His personality makes him so easy to be with.
It’s always natural for him to want to please.
He smiles often and in a way that automatically moves you closer to him.

He is a pleasure to travel with – he doesn’t whine or nag, nor is he discourteous.
He has wonderful manners, quite on his own. Must be his good breeding.
He always does the best he can in spite of his physical limitations.
I continually tell him how smart he is, because he makes such a stellar effort at trying.

People comment on how handsome he is and surely he is the handsomest Downs Syndrome child in America. That puts him at the top.
He’s slim, has a flat tummy, is not picky about food.
He’s on a special vitamin formula for metabolic differences that keeps him
remarkably healthy.
He is an overall treat to be around.
I’ve made great progress as a person thanks to his presence.
I’m patient, non-judgmental, deeper and richer as a person.
Of course I’m prejudiced, but also fortunate.
I just wanted you to know what a lovely grandson you have.

Love,

Julie Newmar
