We are the proud parents of six children, four of which are adopted. The three that we are discussing today are our youngest. Matty is 19 and I can't get a grip on that!! Next is our Princess Marlena, 17, who is a real diva! Last our son Marcus who will be 16 on July 1. They are just like triplets yet so very different. They have come as infants from as far away as Texas and from our home state Ohio. They all have unique challenges and strengths. We can't imagine our lives without these beautiful young adults. I guess the way I best describe our life is, we love slower. They do everything and anything. They play Challenger Baseball, Special Olympics basketball, bowling and track, go to dances, hang out with friends and go to sleep overs; everything that typical children do, just later! Our son Matty has some very involved medical issues, yet he participates in just about all activities. Life is appreciated so much more seeing the world through their eyes. The Lord called use to adopt these children and He has blessed us with a new day ever since! No two days are alike, and isn't that awesome! Oh by the way I didn't mention this but they all have Down syndrome. For those who my think it is a dreaded disability, its not! It is an awesome ABILITY!!!!
