31 for 21: Down syndrome - - -because

Because my daughter has Down syndrome, I’ve met a lot of great people.

Because my daughter has Down syndrome, I’ve come to this city.

Because my daughter has Down syndrome, we are a part of a great school.

Because my daughter has Down syndrome, I’ve been given reason to be on a superb team of support in our community.

Today all these elements came together.  Today I sat with two groups of ladies whose lives connect through my tiny little girl and enjoyed fellowship in the midst of hundreds of women.  But none of these special ladies would be in my circles at all if it were not for my daughter, who has Down syndrome.

How blessed I am to have this phenomenal group of women around me. 

How blessed I am to have Braska’s team at school be full of those who are also excited to praise God alongside me, learn about how to be more faithful and in tune with His plan, and determined to allow that faith to make them better parents, teachers, therapists, and friends.

How blessed I am…so much so because my daughter has Down syndrome.

  1. You all have taught me a bunch and if Braska wasn't here, maybe no blog from you, and if no blog, maybe we would have never reconnected so that I could learn... so a blessing to many, that little one is!
