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!"

Praise the Lord!

Do you remember my post a few days ago, about little Lera? She was literally DAYS from being transferred to an institution, where she would quickly deteriorate, and eventually die. Never knowing the love of a family. A mother's love whispered in her ear, or a lullaby at night. The only thing to save her from this fate is if someone came forward and made a commitment to adopt her.

I'm thrilled to announce that Lera has a family!!!! Meet Lera's new family! Then, follow along on their journey over the next few months as they work to bring Lera home. Lera's family has 4 biological children, which includes a set of twins. One has DS, and the other does not. They know from experience that raising a child with DS is not the curse some doctors try to convince you of. Instead it is a blessing, and a gift.
