Fall 2012
[learning to live a perfectly imperfect life]

Meet Kelle

I can't say how I would've felt about Rylee's diagnosis of Down syndrome if we had found out the minute she was born. We already knew she had an extra chromosome.

So, I did not experience what this mom experienced.

But, it doesn't matter.

It doesn't matter because this mom is a good writer... no, an extraordinary writer. And extraordinary writers write so well that it doesn't matter if you experienced what they did -- you still feel as though you can relate.

I didn't know about her blog until the post in which she so miraculously describes the way her family entered the world of Down syndrome.

I haven't gone back to read about her life before the day she describes. Instead, I am joining her on her journey from this point forward.

Whether you have a child with Down syndrome or not, you will be touched.

With amazing photos, breathtaking words, and a remarkable story, she has captured me.

I leave her blog each time with a feeling of such love.

And it doesn't seem right to keep this feeling to myself...

I know I'm raging with hormones now, but I believe I would be crying just as hard even if I weren't because of Kelle's unique gift to share her experience with so much raw emotion. It's entries like hers (and some of yours too, Carin!) that remind me to appreciate love and relationships in life instead of the things that don't really matter.

Thanks for sharing her post.
