MORE TO SHARE
A few of the common physical traits of Down syndrome are low muscle tone, small stature, an upward slant to the eyes, and a single deep crease across the center of the palm. Every person with Down syndrome is a unique individual and may possess these characteristics to different degrees or not at all.
A busy day for me & Emmie. She has physical therapy,then we are meeting Aunt Becca & her daughter Hailey for lunch. Tonight a sitter is coming to watch the kids & I am going to a seminar at Aim High...Special Care Planning. Looking forward to getting more information & seeing my friends!! Time to get some chili in the crockpot....it's the perfect day for it.
I am a mother of 2 children. Aidan is 3 years old. Emily is 3 weeks old & to our surprise was diagnosed with
Down Syndrome at birth.
April 4, 2009....Our perfect plan we had for our family changed forever.
I am married to a wonderful husband. He is a computer geek & a soldier in the National Guard. Our family has lived through a year deployment. My husband was overseas for a year when Aidan was ten days old. I couldn't ask for a better father for my children.
I believe you create your own life & that there is a purpose for everything that happens in life. I live by my Grandmother's motto:
"You can, you will, & you must". I have learned that the best things in life are not planned.
