Happy first day of Down Syndrome Awareness Month!!!! I am participating in the 31 for 21 challenge again this year! I always use this time as kind of an Ella update, as obviously I am not so good at keeping this blog updated (but I do update my other one daily at 365hunterandella.blogspot.com .) This past year has been a good one, despite some medical issues and some school issues! I look forward to actually writing this month and hope to think of more things to write about!!!! I will start the month off with a recent video of Ella, taken last Friday!!!
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
