Happy World Down Syndrome Day!

today is world down syndrome day!   we will be taking freshly baked muffins to share with wyatt's family service coordinator and the team who will be part of wyatt's first TRANSITION TEAM MEETING!!!   to say that this is a stressful time is an understatement!   this is the first step in transitioning out of the early intervention program into the public school system.  we have been so very blessed by the early intervention program, i do not look forward to transitioning!!!  but it is time to start the process, so here we go!  we covet your prayers as this process begins! 

three years ago we had never even heard of world down syndrome day, and today we actually celebrate it!   we certainly had no idea how much that little extra chromosome would change our lives!  we know that God has great plans for our little man, and that wyatt's Down syndrome was NOT a surprise to our Mighty God!  

"For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb.   
I praise you because I am fearfully
and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well. "   
Psalm 139:13-14 

"For I know the plans I have for Wyatt,"
declares the Lord,
"plans to prosper him and not to harm him,
plans to give him a HOPE and a FUTURE!!!"
Jeremiah 29:11

  1. Happy, happy WDSD!

    (And now, that "I have a Maker" song will be stuck in my head all day just from seeing the lyrics!)

  2. Great post! I "shared" on my FB page. But my "comment" is mostly -- "Love the PEEPS" ; )


  3. What a cute little man. Hope his transition goes smoothly for all of you. I'm sure we'll be there before we know it. Happy WDSD!

  4. Love the spring freshness, the peeps (see - I know what those are and I know they're yacky - even though I'm foreign!) and the gorgeous photo of Wyatt, complete with a verse that matters very much to me right now and always. Love you Penny, and your throng, and happy WDSD from my house to yours!

  5. I LOVE this picture of Wyatt! He is so handsome!!
