Here is a video of Ella reading a book sent home with her from school. They sent a different one home with her last week, the same style, and she really struggled. Even crying because she couldn't get it. So, her teacher sent me an email and said to read this book TO Ella and make her responsible for saying the word "at" and "the." "The" is one of the words, for whatever reason, Ella just could NOT get last week. So I open the book and Ella takes off reading the entire thing, with NO errors the first time through. Then I asked if I could record her reading and she said sure! You can tell when she gets distracted....you know like when a dog runs over your book....but she did so good! I am so proud of her!
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!

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
