Blogging about life in Minnesota, raising our six kids with Down syndrome while battling Breast Cancer.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor in the morning the devil says, "Oh shit! She's up!"

Does this move you to tears?

7 year old Gina has Autism. You know, a word many parents fear, and many had to face that fear head on. But Gina has an amazing gift...she has a voice. The child who's parents worried she might never talk now blesses others with her sweet sound. Listen, while she sings The Star Spangled Banner at an NBA playoff game. 

And I have to say, I love her little toe thing! You know, just a little girl up there, singing her heart out in front of several thousand people.

as someone who works with kids with autism, i had chills the entire time!!!!! Can I send your blog link to my autism message board peeps? They'd LOVE to see this. What a sweet girl. and the look on the cheerleader's face at the end was priceless. She was clearly thinking "WOW! big voice for a tiny girl"
