People ask us all the time…
“What’s it like raising a child who has Down syndrome?”
And so in honor of National Down syndrome Awareness Month this month…
I thought I would give you all the answer to that question.
As you can probably tell.
The truth about raising these girls who have the beautiful additional chromosome.
THEY ARE TWO OF THE GREATEST BLESSINGS WE HAVE EVER, EVER BEEN GIVEN IN THIS LIFE!
Our lives are certainly not the same as they were before Hailee and Harper came home from Ukraine two years ago.
Our lives are richer.
And positively more amazing!
Our lives are BETTER…
Simply because our Abba Father chose us to be their family.
How exceedingly blessed we are!
And to think that the God of the universe, in all of His grace and loving kindness, has chosen to bless us with Kael too–one more treasure who has Down syndrome.
What did we ever do to deserve these GIFTS from heaven?
I am forever thankful.
