Our Twins are Seven!!!

It's hard to believe that it has been 7 years already since I was the mother of newborn twins! The years are flying by. They were such good sweet babies and I wish I could say they still are always sweet!!! They have developed into wonderful, stubborn, happy, opinionated 1st graders and we wouldn't have them any other way! Seven years ago I didn't know if I could handle raising a child with Down Syndrome but Ricky is such a huge blessing. He is a loving, adorable and extremely funny guy. His sense of humor is one of the best I have ever seen and he is always quick to forgive or ask for forgiveness. He loves and accepts others unconditionally and has lots left to teach each of us about patience, acceptance and forgiveness. Ricky is an awesome athlete and will be a great competitor in the Special Olympics some day soon. Greta is a fun-loving, funny, sometimes too serious little girl who is trying so desparately to be big like her sisters. I wish she would just stay my little girl for a while longer but she's so eager to grow up. At least she still likes dressing like a girl and likes to cuddle with mom yet! They are so different from one another but also share a bond that the rest of us don't have with them. We thank God every day for our beautiful twins and ask for patience to handle all that they throw our way!!!!

Happy Birthday.I hope the twins have an amazing day.
I can totally understand the bond the two of them share. I'm a twin myself and it's one of the greatest gifts god has bestowed upon me.

Happy New Year.
