Thank You!

November already! Can it be? We were just at the beach. Time is running at top speed. Blink and you will miss something. That's how I feel. Emmie is over a year old, still in shock about that. She is doing well, I wish you could hear the laugh in the picture above.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who came by and read my posts for 31 for 21. Thanks for taking the time and finding an interest in our journey. I do at times feel like we are all part of a secret club. Don't laugh , but sort of like the early Christians. They were happy to live together sharing everything in the name of Jesus. So much so that they attracted attention from others. They looked on in disbelief at how anyone could be happy in a situation like that.Praising a God they couldn't see. Giving freely to each other and expecting no payment. It was ridiculous to most. But somehow it was attractive. People were curious and wanted to know more. They wanted in on that happiness.
We have that happiness, most people look at us and have pity or confusion as to why we are happy.Why we praise Jesus for these children who in there eyes are damaged. How can we be so happy?

I am sure that this month peoples hearts were softened and eyes were opened, and minds were changed. I don't know who read my posts or anyone elses , but I can feel in my heart that there are more members to our club. The secret is spreading. It is spreading through our voices and through our actions.

Thank you, to everyone who wrote, who commented , who laughed and who cried, who followed along silently with us this month. Thank you to everyone who took the time to educate yourself and others. Thank you for spreading the word, and for loving our children.

WELCOME TO THE CLUB!!!!!!!!!!

I love being a part of this club. A friend just called me last night because her friend has a DS baby that has a heart defect and she asked me if we had a support group. I said heck ya, send her to my blog and she'll find hundreds of people in her same situation!

What a great post!! I was just on the phone with Zoey's mom Heather today and we were talking about how baffling it is now to realize that there are people out there who don't think they want their child with Ds....it really is something you can only know once you are "in the club". This amazing love that we have for these children is so hard to explain to another, but I want so badly for everyone to understand what they are missing!! As usual, you put your thoughts (and those of the rest of us) into such wonderful wording!! I think you and Heather need to write a book!!

Thanks Steph, you couldn't be more right! Mike and I have always believed that the absolute best way to advocate, is for people to just witness how crazy in love we are with our Presley... just as she is!
