the joy of nella.

i have been blogging for about a year now and blogging didn't really make an impact on me until around the time that i found out i was pregnant. i cannot tell you how i stumbled upon this, because i really do not remember, but i began reading about nella's birth story not knowing what i was getting myself into. i read every word, saw every emotion, felt every pain, and cried for the half an hour it took me to finish (took a few breaks to blow my nose, wipe my tears, and share moments with my husband). this story made such an impact on me that i felt like i needed to share this story with many of my family members and loved ones. i do not know why i never posted about it here on my blog but i am now. please read her birth story...

nella <3

i have been following this family ever since (mind you, i found kelly's blog when nella was already a few months old). i look forward to her beautiful posts and pictures daily. she also lives in florida (further north... i believe they live in naples and i live in miami). this family makes my heart smile... their love for that little girl is contagious!! nella is turing 1 and in honor of her and all the other beautful children in our world with down syndrone that have started nella's oneder fund. kelly has made a beautiful video explaining the fund and its purpose. i invite you to check it out... this is one beautiful family full of love.
