This is a story of a beautiful little girl born with Down syndrome. She is a huge blessing in our lives. You will read about our joy, sadness, denial, heart breaks, and love for this beautiful, feisty, African-America little girl. Our story is filled with inspiring words and light-hearted humor to inspire any new parent full of questions, doubts and fear. When Paige was born, I never dreamed she would make the progress she has made. I realized that I celebrated each milestone with the pride of her winning Gold at the Olympics. I had no idea that she would be doing some of the things she is doing today. I hope you enjoy our story and find it inspiring to you, someone in your family, or a close friend.

I started this blog many times over the last few years. For whatever reason (life) I never got a chance or time to get started. When Paige was born, very little information was available for new parents with Down syndrome. I relied on libraries and the outdated information found on the internet. Being totally lost and confused I started a parent support group for our community. Well that lasted for about a year until our co-founder passed away suddenly. It was a very sad time for us, but we just didn’t keep it together. Then I had my 3rd child, returned to work and as they say the rest is life.
Fast forward a few years later, Paige is all grown up and an intelligent little girl. Read some of the posts on mischievous and you can tell what I mean.
