Adding Gracie

Gracie only adds when it comes to our family! She has this special way about her that you can't help but fall in love with her. 

Gracie is such a joy to be around! She makes it so easy to parent her! Everything about her is easy, even her occasional stubborn streaks. 

Life is so much better with Gracie in it. I didn't think it would be possible for her to get any cuter when I was in China last year bringing her home! I couldn't have been anymore wrong! She just gets cuter everyday! The more she learns the cuter she is! The funnier she is! The smarter she is!

While I am full aware of the broad spectrum of children with Down Syndrome, honestly Gracie's sweet designer genes are really just the best genes ever! She is perfectly and wonderfully made! I think Gracie's only special need was that she needed a family to love her just the way she was designed!

Adding Gracie to our family was one of the best decisions we have ever made!

...to love her the way she was designed. That is a wonderful and very truthful statement! (I found your blog from Sonia Martin's.) I love reading about other big families, we are on our way :), grown through adoption. Thanks for the encouraging read this morning.

You have a very beautiful and perfectly designed family!
