On March 25, 2010 God blessed me with a baby girl who I was told had trisomy 21. At first I cried and said "not me." My husband and I didn't know what to do. We thought, "how can we care for a child like this." She also had some of the problems more common in with kids with Down syndrome, like problems with her heart. As a mother of four already, I didn't think I could handle it. So I almost made the mistake of putting her up for adoption. But then I had to think, that's a cop-out and God doesn't give you more than you can handle. So I mothered up and took her home. Well, let's just say that was the best choice I've made in my life. This little woman has showed me the real meaning of complete and unconditional love in no other way I've known before. I'm proud to say that this three-year-old going on 40 has brought my whole family together. She makes everybody's day. She has been through so much with her two heart surgeries and her bad colds, but nothing will hold her down not even a pacemaker and the big cut going down her chest. I thought she would never be able to do the common things like her brothers and sisters but has she fooled me. Sometimes I think she runs the family instead of me. All in all she's our world and we wouldn't give her up for anything. Except for when she takes selfies and makes random calls on my phone!
