“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. I'll always be with you.”
~A.A. Milne, from "Winnie the Pooh"

A Heartfelt Thank You From Me to You

Dear Friends,
I know that I have already said thank you for your thought, prayers and comments several times. But I'm really not sure that I can ever thank you enough. Or explain to you what each and every page view, and comment (yes, I have read every single one...all 300+!) has meant to this family. 
Yesterday was one of the very hardest days of my life. Without a doubt. But every single time that I was able to log onto here, my heart was lifted. Yes, I cried. But with unbelievable joy and awe not fear. The love that was poured out for us, by you, people who don't even know us, was completely overwhelming. 
So to all of you who took time from your busy lives to come by, drop a line, say a prayer, and fall in love with my sweet baby, THANK YOU! 
Here are some pre-op pictures as your reward for blessing us!!! :)

From my heart to yours,


  1. Your daughter is beautiful! You are all in my prayers.

    PS There is another blog that I absolutely love to read. They have a daughter with down syndrome as well, and I thought you may be interested. I absolutely adore her photographers and heart-felt stories.

    I very much look forward to reading more of your blog. Thank you for sharing!

  2. I am in love with her chubby little face! Still praying for you all. Much love :-)

  3. I kept checking for an update. So glad Lydia is doing well. I think all 300+ of us fell in love with your sweet baby. She is so precious!

  4. What a beautiful, beautiful girl!!

  5. Your daughter is truly a beautiful baby. She looks like she's made of happiness :)
    May she have a long, healthy and happy life!

  6. She is so beautiful! Truly a blessing from God!


Yes, I read every single comment and I love them all! Please leave us one (and imagine me doing a happy dance when I see it!)
