OCTOBER IS DOWN SYNDROME AWARENESS MONTH!!

We were blessed with three angels. One of which has Down syndrome. Sometimes I feel like I totally forget that Josie has DS, other times, I feel like it is the only thing on my mind. My life has changed for the better for the people I have met because of Josie. My husband life has changed for the better for the people he has met because of Josie. Katie and Owen's lives have changed for the better because of the friends that they have because of Josie. She is truely and Angel. She was brought to our family so that we might be better people. We are, all of us, and we will continue to be better people because of her!




This is my angel!!!!!






The Creed of Babies with Down Syndrome



My face may be different
But my feelings the same
I laugh and I cry
And I take pride in my gains
I was sent here among you
To teach you to love
As God in the heavens
Looks down from above
To Him I am no different
His love knows no bounds
It's those here among you
In cities and towns
That judge me by standards
That man has imparted
But this family I've chosen
Will help me get started
For I'm one of the children
So special and few
That came here to learn
The same lessons as you
That love is acceptance
It comes from the heart
We all have the same purpose
Though not from the start
The Lord gave me life
To live and embrace
And I'll do it as you do
But at my own pace
