One of the many things Ella has brought to my life is new friends. I have met people that I know I never would have known had I not had Ella, and Ella not have Down syndrome. Tonight we had a gathering of our own little Down syndrome support group (it is kind of a joke that we have going, it's just 3 moms but we all have very similar outlooks on life as a mother of a kiddo with Ds.) I really tried to get some good pics of the kids together but it didn't happen, or at least they just aren't good of Ella, she wasn't in the mood to have her pic taken.

Okay, I had to come back on here and post this for Mary and Rebecca. The kids were dancing fools tonight, apparently this song is a favorite of Elliot and his baby sister Elizabeth, they were absolutly hysterical!! Riley has some awesome moves in there!!!
I am a mother to two incredible children. Hunter is 8 years old and Ella Grace is 6 years old. My children are my life, my true joy. My life was turned upside down when my daughter was born and surprised us all by having Down syndrome. Since her birth I have come from sorrow and a sense of loss to greater happiness than I ever imagined and I owe it all to The Amazing Ella Grace! Contact me anytime by email email@example.com
My face may be different,but my feelings the same.I laugh and I cryand take pride in my gains.I was sent here among you to teach and to loveas God in the heavenslooks down from above.To Him I'm no different,His love knows no bounds;It's those here among you, in cities and townsthat judge me by standardsthat man has imparted,but this family I've choosenwill help me get started.For I'm one of the children,so special so few,that came here to learnthe same lessons as you.That love is acceptance, it must come from the heart;we all have the same purpose,though not the same start.The Lord gave me lifeto live and embrace,and I'll do it as you do,but at my own pace.-Unknown
