#downsyndromesupport

After an extremely busy 10 or so days (and no signs of letting up this side of 2017 or beyond) was lovely meet up with some of the lovely mams at Down to Me RCT this morning, especially as I'm working 99% of the times that they meet - nice morning off the birthday windown / getting ready for decorations. Treston is wiped out so I've managed to catch up on some chores this afternoon before school run so I'm now treating myself to this and the Kardashians 😃 #mumlife #parentlife #familylife #fun #birthdays #xmas #cake #birthdaycake #downsyndromesupport #nothingdownaboutit

Took Colin to the movies. Chrissy was worried we would have to leave due to his behaviors. Colin hasn’t been to a movie in a long time...it was time to give it a try! It was a huge success. While the movie Wonder isn’t our family situation there were so many things that were relatable! #colins_story #wonder

Colin woke up at 1am. Threw sneakers at sam while she was sleeping. (I Told her to clean her room!) This video is from 3:30am. Shortly after I settled him down on the floor in our room he started belting out Xmas songs and the happy birthday song! Then the real fun began. He became agitated and started banging on the floor and knocking things over. One of which was our alarm clock. (Which unknowingly turned our alarm off!!!!). Colin roamed the house untill about 5am. Then he finally decided to lay on my floor and get some sleep. He woke up at 6am, went to the bed and tried to sleep off his little late night party. Heck no! I woke him up at 7:15 and took advantage of school even if it was only a half day! This most recent picture is Colin on his way to get his thanksgiving haircut! Of course he’s sleeping....he’s tired. I hope Sam, Chrissy and Brian are surviving their day. If Colin doesn’t sleep the whole house doesn’t sleep! #colinsstory

Sang ran into some friends from school and customers from @sandwich_hag, as well as made a new friend. Throughout this year, he started to recognize similar features when he sees someone with Down Syndrome. He said to me several times that day, "He's the same as me". This is a new progression in Sang's self awareness. #BuddyWalk2017

Here’s a little about our Adoption journey:
This time 3 years ago we got the call about this beautiful little girl. Right about now we were on our way to meet her for the very first time as I drove my hubby crazy hyperventilating and crying while we sat through rush hour traffic on our 5 hour drive -that seemed to take forever! I had so many thoughts running through my head through the trip, like - what if they didn’t like us, what if they change their minds, what do we say, the list went on! All I knew was my heart was bursting with love for her and I hadn’t even met her yet. I worried about rather the nurses were watching over her, was she warm enough, was she eating okay. I prayed the entire ride and would occasionally pinch myself to make sure this wasn’t all a dream! We walked into the hospital room around 10:30 pm to finally meet her and her birth parents. Kadence was in her little portable hospital bed next to her birth mother. We were not sure what to say to these courageous strangers we were meeting for the first time, but I felt this immediate connection to them, a love as if I had known them all my life. My heart melted, knowing the strength and love these beautiful parents had for this little girl. An unspeakable love for them to make the decision of Adoption and to entrust us with this incredible little life they had created. Here she is 3 years later and sometimes it still seems surreal that we have been so incredibly blessed. Kadence is everything we prayed and dreamed for and so much more. She has taken on us the most incredible journey of our lives and I can’t wait to see what happens next!
An Adoption journey is certainly the most emotional ride you’ll ever take but it’s also worth every minute of it! 💞

This is Colin happy that I made his favorite turkey dinner two nights ago. 1/2 hour after dinner he decided he would not be participating in anything. Had to drag him to the car where he would not get in. Called a wonderful neighbor who came and watched Colin lay in the drive while I ran chrissy to volleyball. Why why why is all I can say. #today isanewday #colinsstory #happysaturday
