Like many children with Down syndrome, Avery has a curved bone in his pinky. He has white flecks in his irises called Brushfield spots, which look like stars in his eyes. He also has a single crease across the palm of his left hand, which was one of the first clues to our pediatrician that Avery might have Down syndrome.
These things have become beautiful to me, parts of Avery that make him who he is. You might say he has me wrapped around his crooked little finger.
