For those of you who have followed this blog for the past year, you have witnessed a roller coaster ride for sure. This post will be a little more about our family and a little less about Down Syndrome. In September Jack and I were officially a couple. A couple surrounded by wonderful friends who walked us through this past year. Prayers have been prayed for security, peace, healing, hope, energy, life, forgiveness, wisdom and many many more things. I have prayed a lot...A LOT in the past year. And I started a tradition with Jack each night that I hadn't really done before it was just the 2 of us. I changed our bedtime routine. Our routine now is to read, sing songs, and pray. And in every single prayer I have prayed that God would reveal himself to my little Jack, that he would give me wisdom in the choices I make for us and that he would bring a daddy for Jack who would love him without condition and love me as well. I remember telling my girlfriends how hard it would be for a man to step into this situation. A single mom with a child with special needs. It seemed impossible. In February I reconnected with an old friend from High School. We have been in contact ever since and have visited one another and it's safe to say that what I thought impossible has been made possible. Jack and I went to visit him and his son last weekend and had a blast.
Gratitude doesn't begin to describe how I feel. I am sure more pictures will be posted and more updates, but for now I'll just say that Jack and I have been blessed and prayers have been answered in ways I didn't think possible. And little Jack is doing wonderfully. We have braces, tubes are getting placed on July 25th and his words, signs and gross motor are coming along quite well. I couldn't be more proud of him.
And here's one of the 4 of us:
