With no time to do it, then why did I even want to blog about this experience? I remember a day this past fall/winter (in Texas, it's hard to distinguish...) -- during one of many, many conversations with my co-worker/office-mate/best friend Holly about my thoughts and processing the fact that I was expecting a baby with Down Syndrome -- I felt compelled to share the story of Leo's life. Before I found other parent blogs online, even before Leo's little eyes opened to take a peek at this world, it felt as though God had given us this little boy made the way he was for a purpose. So.....
- It's our duty as his family to be a voice for Leo in sharing his story and purpose.
- Our extended family lives hundreds of miles away and they all want to keep up with how our bundle progresses!
- I hope there might be something we experience that could help some other family as they go through the process of learning their little bundle has been blessed with three chromosome 21, or even provide information and trouble-shooting to other families along their own journey as they raise their little ones.
- What I would really love most of all, is for Leo to read these entries some day about his own journey.
So without continuing to ramble your eyes off, here we go. Buckle your seat belt, keep your hands and arms inside the windows, put on your sunglasses, and please enjoy the ride along this journey with us!
