Ella is 16 Months Old!!!


This is a quote that I came across when I was reading about little Presley of http://gilesfamilyof5.blogspot.com/. It just struck me as so true. I think all of us remember how we felt when we first got the diagnosis, whether it was pre or post-natally. We were devastated and afraid of the unknown. But I bet if you ask every parent who has a child with Ds, they would agree with this quote.
'We often think that having a child with T21 is like gaining membership to a secret club, a club you never knew you wanted to be in or even existed, but once you are in, you are so thankful that you were chosen'.

Amen to that! I often paraphrase a quote from one of the moms on BBC. I never knew I wanted a child with Ds until God gave me one.

Happy 16 months beautiful girl!
