“It was meant to be.”
On their very first date at the Cheesecake Factory in Kansas City, where both lived, Albert made a confession. “He told me he had lied about his age,” says Deidre. “He had told me he was 21, but he was really only 18. But, I told him I had a confession of my own.”
“It was then that Deidre told Albert that she had an infant daughter, and that the baby had Down syndrome. “I found some literature about Down syndrome in Spanish to give to Albert, since he didn’t speak much English at the time,” Deidre says. “I wanted him to understand my situation completely.”
