Special needs parents! Our children are under serviced! These are the grants given to adult residential facilities in California alone! I know there are way more care homes out there that didn't get any funding! .
I love that many of you concentrate on your child's iep & school, but guess what we can learn forever! Try thinking about their lives after you! Are they prepared for that? That's my main goal for my child as a special needs mom & dependent adult provider!
For me, it’s every day. 💪🏻🧠
Look how proud she is!! I can’t get enough of these two together! I am so impressed with how Emmy has done with her new brother. She loves Reese so much and has adjusted so well. There is no jealousy (yet) and she just wants to be around him all the time. She brings him her toys and gives him his pacifier when she thinks he needs it. She does however steal his bottles 😂. Luckily he has only had a handful of bottles in his life. The first few days after he came home she would get sad or scared when he would cry and now if she hears him whine or cry she goes to him to comfort him with hugs and kisses. He’s darn good with her too. She sometimes loves on him a bit too much and tries to pick him up and place him on her lap, or she pats his back a little too hard while trying to mimic burping him. He never seems to mind her aggressive but sweet ways. This seems like the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Photo cred @steviecruzphotography #theluckyfew #siblings #siblinglove #brothersisterlove
Stetson got to have Christmas a little early, due to he may be doctoring at Mayo during that time. To any special needs moms out there, The Lovevery Play Gym is a must! We talked with our PT and she said it would be perfect for him & she was right!! So many sensory items built into the mat, lots of padding for tummy time, more room to play on than your typical play mat, and my favorite part, capability for it to grow with them as they get older! (It turns into a tent! Double win!) Stetson loves it, as does Mommy!

One of the programs we do at @dspntexas
is the Parents’ First Call program which is a committee of parents who bring a basket of goodies to new parents of a baby with Down syndrome. When Em was born 10 years ago, there was no such program and I left the hospital googling what to do next. Funds raised by our organization and others across the country go towards efforts to reach out to new parents and offer support which increases the chance of parents becoming strong advocates for their children. Two baskets going out today for new babies born in Fort Worth this week- one English speaking and one Spanish speaking. Apropos of nothing, DS does not discriminate with regards to race or ethnicity. Our membership is composed of diverse individuals all sharing the same goal. #downsyndromeawareness #morealikethandifferent #community #nonprofit #babies #downsyndrome #educate #celebrate #awareness #positivevibes
Thinking of our lil Oakley... you were born into such a wonderful loving family... a mom n dad that did everything possible to make you comfortable and love you DEARLY! We were so blessed to have her in our lives, the trials and all that we take for granted. Gone within a year... hold onto the ones you love, remember when they cry, or when they get into things, make a mess, make you frustrated... that all could be gone within a flash. You truly never know what Gods plan is.. It’s the little things that matter most, they want & need the attention...STOP, sit down; cuddle and love on their cute little self. It’s at those times they need it the MOST! They grow all to quickly.. or gone w/the blink of an eye. RIP Oakley 1/30/2015 - 12/12/2015 till we meet again my beautiful granddaughter 🥰 you are forever missed an loved💗 #nanaof8 #oakley #downsyndrome #foreverinourhearts #perfectlittlesoul #godsplan #nanalovesherbabies
13 de Diciembre, un día que no olvidaré jamás y no sólo por ser el día que nació mi Joaquín sino con todo lo que trajo después, estuve en la cesárea y te vi nacer prácticamente sin signos vitales mis piernas temblaban al verte como te reanimaban y después como los doctores me hablaban de un defecto cardíaco y el fenotipo down, pero al llegar me enseñaste que toda prueba la podemos superar con amor y paciencia y aquí estamos un año después tras varios ingresos a hospitales, tu cirugía al corazón, luchar por la inclusión y tu tratamiento neuronal a pesar de este desierto que pasamos Dios no nos dejó jamás, que viva el santo Joaquín de mi vida ❤
