life and times of a family with a little man with designer genes
A Little Something Extra
Friday, September 5, 2008
Micah is 8 months old today. If you haven't met him, I hope you're able to soon. He's a sweet little boy who breaks into a huge smile if you get close to him. I'll try to post some pictures after tomorrow's BUDDY WALK. If you'd like to support Micah's team tomorrow, either let us know that you'd like to help out (to ARC Fox Cities), or contribute with a credit card by clicking the link in the upper left of this blog page (yes, FirstGiving takes a portion of what you contribute by using this medium).
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.
