Beautiful

I'm sure that every mother thinks that their child is the most beautiful...I'm no different!  Tonight I was flipping through folders of pictures looking for one that would inspire me to write....and about Down syndrome.  I came up with a blank.  Every picture was of her doing something normal and typical and nothing that said, "I have Down syndrome".  They were just beautiful snipits of our everyday life.

Down syndrome is a third copy of the 21st chromosome.  Such a tiny part, to add so much to her.  Such a tiny part of our lives, yet still always there.
When she was first born, I would "look" for the Down syndrome...the almond eyes...they were the tell.  And I would look for it in my blog babies.  And it was always there....I could see it.
 NOW....I actually find myself "looking" really hard to see the almond eyes.  Cause when I look at this girl, all I see is love and beauty and happiness.  She is my joy and her laughter can light up a room!  And we count ourselves so blessed to be her family.
