GiGi has left the building

Ciarra and I played hostess to GiGi the Travelling Poodle for a month or so recently. (IT was supposed to be MUCH shorter a visit, but we were dealing with sickies, so GiGi's owners let her stay awhile.)

We went bowling, visited Paul Bunyan, tubing at Hermon Mountain ski area, visited Joshua Chamberlain (Civil War hero), took GiGi to Pajama Day with Ciarra's class, and went to Stephen King's house. (he wasnt home.)

GiGi is the brainchild of a beautiful family we know through another DS board we frequent. McKenna is GiGi's "Mom" and Darah is her beautiful inspiration. It has been a pleasure to be a part of GiGi's travels to bring awareness of Down syndrome to the world, one family at a time. We hope GiGi stays warm on her next visit to a precious little boy named Austin, and on all of her journeys to come.

HOW CUTE!! Ciarra looks like she thoroughly enjoyed taking care of GiGi and so proud to be her Mommy for a while.

I want to thank you for your comment today on my blog. I am so happy that it brings you such joy to see and read about our life with Owen. He is so full of life and loves every waking minute. I was just talking with a friend tonight about the fact that he lay in a NICU for the first 4 months of his life all by himself and then lay in a crib in an orphanage for the next 14 1/2 months before we brought him home to be our son forever and ever. What a blessing and miracle he truly is!!
