When Mayson was almost one, we went to Chicago and met part of our new "second family". It was several families that got together and met for the first time.... all with one thing in common, Down syndrome. CJ and her family were there, Terri and her family were there, Barbie and here family where there, and my friend Gillian and her family were there. Gillians sweet little Polly is also the same age as Mayson. It was so fun seeing them together. Working on the same struggles. One more person that "got it"! We truly all felt like one big happy family, as we gathered at GIGI's PLAYHOUSE... Just us families had it all to ourselves. The Whole place! Our kids got to be kids, enjoy themselves, play, laugh, and have fun. Us parents could sit and talk about our angels and how yes, its hard to have a child with a disability, but how they had been the greatest things that had ever happened to our families. It was an amazing experience.
Last week sweet Polly had a seizure out of the blue...... ended up in the hospital and has been recently diagnosed with Moyamoya syndrome. She is now scheduled for brain surgery in November. So, I am asking for you to do two simple things for me.....
One, place her button on your blog.. you can go here to do that.
Secondly, to pray pray pray for this sweet girl. The power of prayer is amazing!!
