Awareness

October is National Down Syndrome Awareness Month. I thought I would post some pictures of my girls when they were younger,as I don't have time to do anything else! lol

I also want to say that this is also National Breast Cancer Awareness month. I'm very fortunate to not know very many people affected by this. I do have one bloggy friend whom is a survivor. Give Kris a shout out, she deserves it!

Oh good grief, they are so cute! Mercede looks like a crackup, even when she was tiny! I love that you can see their personalities even when they are little.

I was not aware that this month was National Down Syndrome Awareness Month so thank you for letting me know.

I was aware that this is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My sister is fighting this cancer at the moment. She is going through her first round of Chemo (once every 3 weeks) her last treatment for this type of Chemo will be this Tuesday. Then in 3 weeks she will start Chemo once a week for 12 treatments. Then she will have a month of rest before she starts her radiation treatment every day (Monday through Friday) for 6 weeks. We figured it up and this will take her to then end of May.

I hope you have a great weekend.

Awww...how absolutely precious!!

Looking at these pictures makes me wonder why you ask 'were are my angels'. Clearly, you have been blessed!

Jeez, I can't even pick my favorite, they're all so cute. I have a very close friend with a baby with Down's (her third, born to her at the age of 32). What began as a tragedy in her eyes has turned into such a blessing. Her Aidan is incredible, bringing such sweet love into their household. I am amazed at the good that God can do, on a daily basis.

Thanks for sharing; this was a beautiful post.

Hey Sinner, Mercede they used to be angels back when they were tiny, but by age two that all changes!

Heather, alot of my online friends have boys with down syndrome named Aidan.
