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!"

One thing about adopting older kids, is they don't stay little very long. Axel is 16 today. Gone is our little boy, and in his place a man!

I know on the other side of the world is his first mother, father and brother,  who all love him as much as we do. This morning we were able to share pictures, and get birthday greetings from his first family.

Today we will celebrate Axel, and next weekend have a party with his friends and some family. We can't wait to see what 16 brings!
