Joy in Sadness
Today has been a sad one remembering our precious daughter, Eden Grace, on what would have been her 8th birthday. However, the closeness I felt to Nathan and our other kids today was beautiful. All of our older kids (who no longer live at home), sent me really touching messages as did other family members and friends. I am so thankful that I am surrounded by people who keep Eden's memory alive. It really is a blessing!
This is only a quick blog today because I'm struggling to concentrate, but I just wanted to share this picture of Felix which made me smile today. Our friend, Jim, added this saying to a photo of Felix and sent it to us this morning. It was great timing because it certainly gave me a giggle. I just want to point out that the majority of people we have met since having Felix have been incredibly supportive. The people who have responded negatively to Felix are in the minority and I put a lot of their reaction down to ignorance. Hopefully this picture of Felix might make people think, and realise that those with Down Syndrome are not scary; in fact, they can be a lot of fun!
