Love & Down Syndrome

John Paul & Dasha

John Paul


Everyone who knows me knows that I have a special place in my heart for children with Down Syndrome. I aim to become the mom of one of these special people soon. I do not see Down Syndrome as a disability, I see it as an enhancement of us "boring" people. People with Down Syndrome are just like us. They have feelings, they have goals, they have needs & they most definitely need love. I have met so many wonderful people in the last few years in my crusade to become the mother of a child with Down Syndrome. I can honestly say that my best friends are those that I have met through my Down Syndrome connections. We first were going to adopt children with DS internationally, but our Heavenly Father blessed us with Cody before we completed our adoption. We still plan on adopting, but will probably do so here in the United States. (though not 100% on this) I believe that Cody will grow up to be a better person if he has a sibling with that extra chromosome. My friend Kristy has 2 beautiful children with DS. (John Paul & Dasha) They were adopted not too long ago and have come so far in such a short period of time. These are pictures of them from Halloween this year. There is also a little girl named Kaelyn whose blog I follow, she was born premature and has Down Syndrome. You can visit her blog and see pictures of her at http://feistykaelyn.blogspot.com Please keep all orphans both human and animal in your thoughts and prayers.

  1. What sweet children! How lucky you and your friend Kristy are to have one another. I am thrilled that you are still planning on adopting. Cody is looking adorable, like always!
