That extra chromosome already working it's magic in the life of another,not yet quite 2.I can almost hear Charlotte,years from now, proclaiming with love overflowing,with a slight hint of protection in her voice,"I have an aunt named Zoey,who has Down syndrome ...."

Charlotte's daddy has been accepted into the graduate program at USC.We are so very proud and excited for Danny and in a few short months,with distance no longer an obstacle,the love fest will continue.How blessed am I?

These are such amazing pictures, ones to keep in your treasured collection with all the others. The last one has to be enlarged and framed for sure!

It's so wonderful that you are all going to be close by again, wonderful for you and so so great for Zoey to have her little niece close to her to grow up together with.

So HAPPY for you!
