Hi everyone!! Well it has been a very long and wonderful day. Today was the day my baby sister, Lizzy, graduated from 8th grade!! I can not believe that she is headed to high school!! How crazy is that! It seems like yesterday we were at the hospital waiting to meet her. It’s amazing how fast time flies and its days like today that makes me reflect on the last 14 years of my life. I can’t believe all the things I have accomplished as a teenager, a young adult, a married woman and as a mother! I have truly been blessed with an amazing family and friends. To top off my morning I had the honor of meeting an amazing family who has beautiful baby girl with Down Syndrome. This family is amazing in every way, they have 5 children and are currently in the process of adopting another baby with Down Syndrome. All I can say is AMAZING!!! So on that note I guess it’s time to spill the beans….
As most of you know David and I have been trying to have another baby and had no success. We have tried a couple fertility procedures and had no luck with them. We have found ourselves at point were big choices need to be made. We’ll that choice has been made; we have decided to adopt a baby. We are not going to be adopting just any baby we have decided on a baby with Down Syndrome. Now I know some of you will be shocked and hopefully excited for us! This is a HUGE adventure our family is beginning and we can’t wait to give updates on the process. We are so excited to expanding our family and saving the life of child. I know that some of you may be thinking we are crazy for doing this but I think that the last 14 years with Lizzy has prepared me and given me the strength and courage to do this with David and Ryan. We know that there will be lots of up and a few downs in this process and we are ready to take it all on! We know that we have hearts big enough to love another child along with Ryan and in the end we will have a much stronger family foundation!
Well it’s off to bed to get some rest for another busy day tomorrow…..I hope you have enjoyed our exciting news and please feel free to leave any comments or questions you may have for us!!
Goodnight and sweet dreams,
