Emersyn (Emmy) is our sweet, cuddly 4 1/2 month old! She loves for anyone to give her attention, has the sweetest smile, and will “talk” to anyone or anything. I’m certain she will have a lot to say when she can really tell us how the feels! Even though she’s so young, we can tell how strong and motivated this girl is. She works so hard at therapy and blows us all away with her strength. Her favorite things include: looking at herself in the mirror, cuddling with momma, making silly faces with daddy, and spending all her time on her tummy. She seriously loves it!
When I was about 18 weeks pregnant, we found out Emmy would be born with Down syndrome. We knew nothing about it and were definitely worried and scared at first. One of the biggest comforts for us was a visit and a new parent basket from the DS Connection of NWA. We have also been so encouraged and felt very welcomed at the recent events we have attended. There is nothing like being surrounded by people that know exactly what you’re going through. We are excited to attend more events and watch Emmy grow up with all of her fabulous friends!
