Rylie and Alice




Rylie had a play date yesterday with her friend Alice. Rylie and Alice are in the same pre school class at UCP. Alice is an adorable 4 year old little girl who also happens to have Down syndrome. Alice came to our house yesterday with her mom, Kim.
This was the first time I met Alice and Kim, and I was thrilled to have them come over. And I really enjoyed talking with Kim. We just had so much to talk about. We probably could have talked for hours and hours but, Rylie and Alice were getting a little bit tired from all the fun they were having. It was so awesome to talk with another mom who "GETS IT", someone who can relate to having a little one with an extra chromosome. I'm looking forward to getting together again soon!

How fun! They look like great pals!

And how wonderful to have another mom to connect with!

I know what you mean. I can talk to my sisters about parenting in general, but they just don't know how it is to raise a child with Down syndrome. It is so helpful to have moms to talk to who are members of "the club".

You're feed reader is working! Yeah! Of course, I have 25 feeds to read. I've read most of them, though.

I totally understand what your saying. It really helps to talk to people that are going though the same as you. I'm happy that you found each other.

They look like they are having a great time together.

I'm so glad you have connected with another mom who understands the special challenges and joys you face.

I wish Gabi had a playmate like that. They look like they could've played for hours on end.
