Having a child with down syndrome can be no easy task for some. This week has been particularly hard for a few kiddos fighting for their lives medically or in orphanages. I am blessed to have a little girl who has no major medical issues. Sure she has had eye surgery and wears glasses, but that's peanuts compared to some. I am blessed because she knows her alphabet, colors, numbers, shapes, site words and is now talking in 3 word phrases. I am blessed because she can climb the ladder on her swing set. I am blessed because I can go to church , a movie, a game and she will sit like a little lady, reading her books and following directions. I am blessed because she can now walk up our stairs without crawling up them. I am blessed because even though she will not use her spoon or fork, she can still find a way to feed herself. I am blessed that every morning and evernight this sweet girl can tell me "i love you"......Yup, I am blessed.
