I am sitting here at my computer cracking up because in a matter of 1o minutes I had over ten emails from the east coast sharing about the new American Idol episode that they are currently watching and is about to air here on the west at 8:00.... and thought I would share for those interested. Apparently there is a contestant, Maddy, who comes from a rather large family and has 4 brothers with Down syndrome, 3 of whom were adopted. One of the emails was from a mom sleuth who did some quick research and found a great article about the family's background concerning their adoptions, you can find it here. Reece's Rainbow is also mentioned in this article, I love it. Well....I have not even seen 1 minute of the new season and already I have my favorite pick for the final contestant! Can't wait to watch it. Go Maddy, Go!
I am blessed to be married to an incredibly loving and kindhearted man, Toby, and I am a mom to 2 boys...I am in the chapter of my life that involves baseball games, homework, playdates, diapers, and dump trucks. It is simply the best! With every part of my being I love being "Mom" and have learned the depth at which my heart can go when our youngest son was born with Down syndrome. This blog was created to connect with other families on this same journey that an extra 21st chromosome presents. Join me as I journal about Down syndrome, life, and raising Reid and his big brother Luke.
