Down Syndrome Awareness Month

Posted Oct 01 2012 5:00pm
October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month.
  While I can't make the commitment 
to blog every day,
I'm committing to updating my blog more than I normally do. 
 I'm starting the month out by featuring Lila, our biological daughter.  Our journey with Lila and Down Syndrome started when we had a prenatal diagnosis of Down Syndrome very early in my pregnancy.  
The doctors said she probably wouldn't make it.  There were so many issues during my pregnancy with her.  At one point the perinatologist sent us home telling us that unless there was a miracle she would never be born.  He hugged me and said he was sorry but there was nothing more he could do.  It was all in God's hands.
Thankfully, our prayers were answeredand she proved them all wrong.   Here she is on day 3 of her life, after surgery to correct duodenal atresia .

Here she is today.  A dance-loving, horseback riding, vivacious, sassy, thriving little girl who loves spending time with her friends and family.
