Hi! My name is Willow. I have Trisomy 21. You know.. Down syndrome. I’ve been labeled a lot of things since my birth in September 2013:  Special Needs, Failure to Thrive, High Risk.. I could go on and on.. but I won’t.. because those labels don’t matter to me or God! All He sees is me! The Mighty Willow. Beautiful and perfectly designed. Join me as I journey through life.

PS: My mom will be doing the writing.. ya know.. because I’m a toddler and stuff.

  1. I love your blog. I love it. Willow is such a pretty baby. You are making me focus more on Christ with what you are writing. Keep shining for
    Jesus Jenny.

  2. I love everything about your blog. I wish I would have ran into something like your last entry 7 months ago, all new moms really want is some comforting words. Someone to tell us it’s going to be okay. That our kids are going to be okay:) thanks for that:) it’s still nice to read stuff like that even now that I’m not that new into mommy hood with my littlest. The time to time reminder that she’s going to be fine, and that good days will come is always nice to hear:)

    I would have commented on your last post, but I couldn’t figure it out to save my life/: sorry.

    anndddd that willow is absolutely gorgeous.

    Can’t wait to read some more!


  3. Jennifer – I am so happy that we got to chat it up at Prairie Bay last week! I feel like we have been friends for months already. Love how you are using your life and Willows to inspire others, and praise God. I look forward to reading more!

  4. Beautiful little girl! Having taught and directed in early childhood education for over 35 yrs I can say Amen to the fact that every child has their own learning speed. No child learns at the exact same rate as their peers. But one thing they all do have in common is that they learn quicker (in language and all the other developmental areas) the more we make use of as many of the moments in the day and turn them into teaching moments.

    I think that parents underestimate the importance of talking to and with our children. As we have a tendency to talk at them in passing. I believe that from the moment we change their 1st diaper we ought to be talking to them about what we are doing and why. It not only implants respect and helps language development, but also communicates to one’s child that they should not only respect themselves, but also only accept respect from others (and not abuse) as well.
