Her First Kiss

Beth desperately wants a first kiss.

She went to the movies today with Diana and they saw Gullivers Travels. I guess there is a kissing scene and Beth didn't like it at all! Not because she didn't like them kissing, but because SHE wanted to be the one getting the kiss.

Before she can have that first kiss, she needs a boyfriend. Before she can have a boyfriend she needs to meet a boy. The problem is.... she is very shy. She's painfully shy! She hardly talks to anyone. At church, at work, at karaoke. She just doesn't talk. It's gonna make it kinda hard to get that first kiss!

It's so hard to see her upset, but there's not much we can do. I'm not one for setting up 'dates' for my kids. And besides, I don't know any 20 something boys with Down Syndrome! :)

Ohhhh. I feel her pain a little bit. I was very shy growing up too. Not sure how I ever made it on my first date.

Awww I'm sure that's hard on a mom's heart!

The best place to meet 20-something guys with DS is Special Olympics!

Hi! I just stumbled onto your lovely blog. Thank you for all that you share! I have a two year old princess with Ds and happened to be talking about dating with an another Mom whomentioned the website "soulfulencounters" as a safe dating and friendship site. It's Christian I guess, so I don't know if that's your cup of tea, but it's for all differently abled people. Anyway, since it was fresh in my mind, I couldn't help passing it on.
