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!"

Three years ago today

Tonight we sat down with Axel. He has enough language now that maybe he can tell us some things. He can at least understand a lot of what we're telling him.

"Axel, do you remember a long time ago, you lived in a different house very far away? Do you remember, there was a different mama and papa?"

I showed him some pictures. They were pictures of his foster family.

"One day Mama got on a plane and flew very far away. Then I went to a house and knocked on the door, and a little boy came to the door. Do you know who that little boy was?"

"Me!" Axel signed.

"Yes, that's right! It was you. You were a little tiny boy. And I came to the door and said, "I am your new mama."
