Where did my cup go?

So I made the decision to be more positive about everything and then almost immediately got thrown off my game.  We went to a Christmas party for families and friends of people with Down Syndrome and it was not at all what I expected.  All of the other things that I have been to have been positive and uplifting and this was far from.  I got so upset by what I saw that I have gone in to a gigantic funk and am trying to dig myself out.  I had met a young woman a couple of months ago who is so high-functioning and wonderful that this is what I decided Elena would be like and after this party I have begun to question what our reality will really be, and it scares me.  I feel guilty for seeing these other kids and not wanting life to be that way for Elena.  So, if anyone has seen my life is half full cup, could you please send it back my way?
