baby Nella

Have you met Kelle?
If not, you really ought to.
This is a good place to start.
It's where I started anyways.
I should warn you;
you might want to grab a tissue
or two.

Lexi loves looking at pictures of Baby Nella

We visit Nella
and her big sis, Lainey
pretty much every night.
and sometimes, during the day, too.
Baby Nella has Down Syndrome.
I used to think that God would give us a DS baby.
In fact, I sort of wished He would.
I've read about the how you can't help
being a better person
when you live with these precious children.
I want to be a better person.
I've always had a soft spot in my heart for
those considered 'disabled'
(TJ has it, too)
so it seemed only logical that God put it there for a reason.
When Lexi was so still in my womb
I wondered....
He didn't choose to bless us with an extra chromosome;
I'm fine with that.
He still uses my children to grow and shape me
and make me just a tiny bit more like Him.
we can pop in and visit Nella
any time we want to.
