This is an edited excerpt from the Orphanage directors e-mail this morning:

"Just wanted to let you know that thanks to G's and your inspiration, I've encouraged our psychologist and staff in ______ to teach A and J, our two boys with Down Syndrome, to learn signing. We're excited to give them this opportunity to communicate better!"

Please know I am not tooting my own horn.....
I just want to share this sweet encouragement that I recieved.
Please be reminded,
like we are.....
no part that you play in the big picture is too small.....
God is faithful.
He uses us when we least expect it.
I am so honored to have such a sweet loving family,
with a new daughter I might add.....
I couldnt do anything that I am doing without Him.....
without them....

This isnt the best quality video, I will apologize in advance, turn the volume way up if you want to hear my singing. ;)It was the best I could get of her signing/signing it because I have to sign or sing too..... I wont tell you how many takes it took.... have I mentioned that she has developed her own opinion about things??? ha ha! she sees the camera come out and ..... never mind.


  1. That's great!!! Thank you for sharing.

  2. I love how she emphasizes STRONG, adding verbal to the signs! Thank you for sharing little G with us.

    Have you ever seen/read a copy of "Just the Way I Am: God's Good Design in Disability" by Krista Horning? It is beautifully done. If you haven't read it and are interested, I have a copy I'd be happy to send you. My email is let me know.

    Bravo, by the way, on being an encouragement to the orphanage to begin teaching sign to other children who could benefit from it. And praise be to God who is at work in and through you!

  3. the comments are just so so sweet ladies.....
    Its just been so so beautiful. Im so thankful I said yes.... to that still small voice.


Thank you for stopping by. We would love it if you left a comment.
