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!"

When did this happen?

When did this happen? When did my little girl, the one who was born a premie, with more medical problems than we could keep track of, who we were told would probably never walk, never talk, and never amount to much...when did she grow up? If you are a  new parent, who have just been told your new baby, or the baby you're carrying has Down syndrome, and you have been told the same things we were, DON'T LISTEN TO "THEM". Listen to your heart! Love your child just as you have or will love your other children!

Today, I'm taking my beautiful young lady to a fall festival, where she'll spend the day with her friends.  Without me.

I remember when I met you on DownSyn about three or four years ago how much I loved loved your sweet little Angela and her precious baby face, she still looked like such a little girl. These photos are amazing, she is beautiful and so grown up. (hug) her for me :)
