A beautiful true story


This story has been linked to by bloggers I enjoy.  Why would I want to read another birth story?  So... I didn't follow their links... I should have known better.

Finally this morning, curiosity got the best of me and I decided to "take the time" to read.  Oh, my...  how wonderful.

You must read this.  It doesns't matter if you are a woman or man, grammie or teen, whomever... read a story of unconditional love...

here.

You will be blessed.

As the mom of a Down Syndrome little boy, that story touched me deeply. I KNOW every feeling she expressed. I lived it, too.

Thanks for the pointer to the story. Now, where are my tissues?! :-)

My first cousin was born with Downs Syndrome and lived into her 30's. An incredible life.

Thank you for linking to that one. I never would've read it otherwise. This family sounds as if they have everything they need to succeed and what a couple of apple dumpling cutie pies they have!

As a mom of a adult son with Down Syndrome, this has got to be the best "love story" I've ever read in blogland. I hope you don't mind, however I posted the link on my blog too. Incredible!! Hugs

Wow...what a story and so wonderfully expressed. I forwarded on to a friend whose tenth child has Downs too. He is a dear sweet boy of 13 or so now. She says he is the best thing that ever happened to her and her family. Some gifts come wrapped differently, but they are still gifts. I was given a child with health issues too, though her problems are severe food allergies. I would never trade having her and all the difficulties we still face (yep still trying to work out her food issues to making life easier on her). She has blessed my life in so many ways. This site is such a wonderful one and thanks for telling your readers!
Blessings, Elizabeth

Thank you for giving us this link. I cried as I read the story, and left a comment there that said that the whole story is about LOVE.
Which makes it so touching.

As I read this, I felt that it gives us a small glimpse into how much our Savior loves and cares for us. None of us are perfect, but HE loves us how we are and meets us where we are. May this sweet family be blessed...and thanks for sharing.
