Bridget, our fifth child, was born with Trisomy 21, also known as Down syndrome. She is a cherished member of our family. Others may feel that Bridget has much to overcome, but she doesn't seem to see it that way. Her approach is genuine, and she is a joyful and willing participant in Life. Down syndrome alone does not define Bridget. Yes, it's a part of her genetic make-up that is distinctly hers, but it is not the most important thing about her. Bridget shines through.
Our blog is meant to celebrate Bridget, and to share some of what we are learning through knowing and loving her.
