I wanted to do a special blog post in honor of World Down Syndrome Day coming up on March 21st.
Where do I even begin? This family of three means the world to me. Ashley and Jon have been my friends for many years now. I was honored when they asked me to come down to Nashville and document them and their beautiful little addition, Lila.
When Lila was born she was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. Ever since that day she and her mother have been changing the way I think about people with DS. Ashley has started a blog titled, I Heard It Thunder, where she is writing about her experiences with Lila and DS resources that have been helpful to her on this journey.
I’m so very proud of my friend Ashley. She is one of the strongest God-fearing women I know. I’m looking forward to getting to know little Miss Lila in the years to come and hopefully documenting her life whenever possible.
