Down Syndrome Awareness Month

wow! it's hard to believe it's october already! where has this month gone? and why am i still awake? up with the oldest son trying to figure out the "perfect" gift for his girlfriend's 18th birthday....

october is down syndrome awareness month, and i've joined dozens of others who will be blogging daily in honor of our kiddos with down syndrome! 2 years ago i would not have even known that there was a buddy walk or down syndrome awareness month, but i'm now fully aware of those events and so much more! God has truly expanded my boundaries....

today i get to have lunch with 4 ladies i would never have met had God not blessed us with wyatt! when we scheduled this lunch date, we were not even thinking about it being the first day of DS awareness month.....but what a great way to "kick the month off!" carol has graciously invited us into her home, and we'll be joined by april, noel and kristen; all moms of precious little ones with ds! michael, wyatt and clayton will be able to "play" together while the bigger kids; chloe and logan, are in school!

i am so blessed to have these women in my life. i can call them anytime with any question! if they don't know the answer, they know where to find it! as i often blog about, i also have THE BEST support online that i could have ever hoped for! i post a question or concern and within moments i get responses from across the country and around the world!

down syndrome has added such a wonderful new dimension to my life....precious friends i've come to lean on, appreciate and love! i thank God for each of you!
