This was the prayer Kevin chose from our “blessing box” tonight for our prayer before dinner:
“Every thing is different
even those things that look the same
that’s how angels are.
(written by our oldest ~V when he was in 1st grade – I fixed the spelling)
What perfect words for today, the day that we were told that this newest little member of our family due in February does indeed have an extra chromosome and therefore Down syndrome. I know it is scary, I know the gut reaction is sympathy, but I’ve been saying all day to family and friends, past my tears, that I just know he is this amazing gift from God, even if it is a gift I am a little scared to open.
I’m sure I’ll have more to say later, but for now…
