Celebrating my girls.

This past Saturday, we attended the annual picnic that is put on by our local Down syndrome association. The kids had a blast, as they always do. And I had fun catching up with all the moms ... and meeting some of the new families.

I am always so excited to see all the new babies that are being born with Down syndrome. I am sure that sounds very strange, but it is true. They are all so beautiful and I love chatting with their parents, if only to just let them know that we have been in their shoes and that everything is going to be fine ... even if it might not seem that way for them just yet.


  1. I always love meeting the new babies, too - and I love the pictures of your girls!! If you ever want to send them away to my house for summer camp, just let me know! Haha!

  2. What a great picture! I can't wait for our picnik! I too LOVE meeting new babies with Ds! :)

  3. Our picnic was the same weekend! This is a great pic of you and Miss Nika! She's so stinkin' cute!

  4. beautiful picture. As a new mom I have sure appreciated meeting other parents. It gives me so much hope to know I wont always feel like this.

    I've really enjoyed your blog!
