life and times of a family with a little man with designer genes
A Little Something Extra
Friday, June 27, 2008
It's been too long since I've updated the blog. There's a lot going on and it might take me a while to write an update. I have not done a good job of recording Nathanisms this week, so I thought I'd share another family's conversation. Tom and his family are also blessed with a toddler (though she's a girl) and a baby boy with an extra 21st chromosome. Link herefor Tom and Silvi's conversation. I got a huge belly laugh from this one, which I desperately needed.
Welcome to our family blog. We have three boys: Nathan (7), Micah (4), and Matthew (3). Nathan is our energetic, sports fanatic first-born. Micah is our charming little guy, who happens to have an extra 21st chromosome (aka Down syndrome) and multiple associated health issues. Matthew is our big-boy-wanna-be. I started this blog the day after we found out that Micah has designer genes (Trisomy 21, aka Down syndrome). We've been through a lot of ups and downs (and a lot of time in the hospital), but God is faithful and continues to show His love toward us.
