We are incredibly blessed to have six individuals with an extra chromosome as part of our family! I remember being so scared when we committed to adopt our son Ivan. What would it mean for our family? How would it impact the children we already had? What would it be like to parent a child with Trisomy 21?
Ivan was (and is) such a blessing, he inspired us to adopt five more kids with DS! No, they aren't angels, they aren't always happy, and they aren't perfect (none of us are!)! They each have unique personalities, individual strengths, and their own challenges, but we can't imagine our family without any of them!
I have to add that we will also be cheering earnestly for our favorite team! Let's go Villanova basketball!
