Come along and follow our journey of being what we think is Normal..... just a average family, following God's calling and a life blessed with Down Syndrome

Thank you Lord...


Every call has a beginning
A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart
A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him.
A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns…casting its first light on a chosen threshold.
A gentle knock..a closed door opens.
A sacred invitation sent by the Father..Leads to the other side of the world.
Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows
Praying for someone to care..
And then one morning,On an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes...
God sends them a second chance...Through you.

Lyndsey as much as I would love to say YES you were gonna have a almost 7.5 yr old sister in a few years, I cant! So be calm...EVEN IF she did join our family it would literally take about 1-1.5 yrs for the process to be that time you would be 21!!!

I love you!
