Where has it gone?
4 years ago, I was staring at your tiny face, with your crescent eyes, and you were no longer a Down syndrome diagnosis – you were Gracie, our perfectly created daughter and God’s Plan A for our lives.
4 years of learning that this journey we on – our new normal, is actually that! Normal. Yes, there are therapies and IEPs and working so hard on things that come very easy for other children, but the hugs, love for sweets, bedtime routines, and playing with siblings are all the types of normal I once wondered if they would be taken away.
Isn’t that silly?
You are the greatest gift, Gracie bug. We love and adore you and I can think of nothing I love more than to celebrate you.
Happy birthday, our sweet doll!
