We are adopting two adorable girls who have a little something extra, Down Syndrome!
We are excited to add them to our family.
We will use this blog to update family and friends on our adoption progress and fundraising efforts.
Just joining us? Click on the 2011 posts in the archive to find out why we are adopting the girls.

Adoption Brings Everyone Together!

I had so much fun last night.  We met with other families adopting special needs sweeties from the same country as our girls.  I could have stayed all night, we had so much fun talking.  Two of the families already have girls with Down Syndrome!  I loved hearing them talk about their girls.  To quote my dear friend Dena, people with Down Syndrome are the sprinkles on the cupcake of life. 

One of the families is also adopting a girl with DS from the same region as us and is in the same place in the paperwork as us.  I really hope that we get to travel together.  It would so wonderful to have that support!

I love hanging out with other people who truly "get us".  They do not question your motives, your sanity or your ability to adopt a child with special needs.  They just celebrate with you.  I really needed that.  So many people just do not realize the HUGE MASSIVE blessing our children are in our lives precisely because of who they are not despite it.

Pictured above is another sweet girl in the same region as our girls.  She needs a family ASAP!!  She currently has a $7800 grant available to help with her adoption.

    Also- hear you loud and clear about getting together with others who are adopting special needs. What a great support you can all be for each other.
